The Hudson Valley Jazz Festival completed it’s 14th season this past.Aug 9-14. Over the past few years we became regional. Each performance generally highlighting local talent and in several towns and different types of venues. We’ve been honored to present high profile jazz artists in the past. However our mission was to primarily featuring groups led by Hudson Valley NY resident artists. ( Who they hire is up to them). We’re all about helping raise the profile of musicians with years of experience deserving wider recognition. We appreciate the coverage given to us by The NY Times, DownBeat, The Village Voice, JazzTimes, WBGO Radio, Chronogram, Straus News, Times Herald Record, Hudson Valley Magazine and others.
The goal was to become a collaborative organization working with musicians, venues, towns and organizations to produce concerts. To a degree it worked. However we’re uncertain as to our plans for 2024 or moving forward. Whats needed most are people to participate in the organization to bring fresh ideas and additional skills to move forward. The goal to establish a well funded regional festival that presents these jazz artists at a respectable rate of pay in settings best suited for live jazz. Looking for fund raisers, planners, investors, towns villages and organizations to help us achieve that. Be great to hear from you.
Looking for a jazz group? You’ve come to the right place.
