The Roswell Arts Fund is hosting the first Beaucoup Jazz and Blues Festival and Pop Up Art Village, an all-day celebration of music, arts, food, fun and community July 31 in east Roswell.
The festival will transform the East Village Shopping Center parking lot into a vibrant summer celebration featuring world-class Jazz and Blues musicians, a pop-up Art Village with up to 75 artists, delicious bites and drinks in the food truck park and more from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
The renowned Brubeck Brothers Quartet will headline the festival alongside an all-star lineup including Papa J Sez featuring Joey Sommerville and Dante Harmon, Gwen Hughes & the Retro Kats, AJ Ghent, Joe Gransden Quintet, Trey Wright Trio, Kebbi Williams and Friends, and Blues Supergroup: The 31’s (featuring members of Jimmy Herring & the 5 of 7).
Morris Baxter of WCLK and Lisa Rayam of WABE will be leading the festivities as co-emcees.
“It’s time to welcome the community back, celebrate the present and plan for the future,” Roswell Arts Fund Executive Director Ghila Sanders said. “What better way to do that than to come together and listen to incredible musicians, dance in the sunshine, shop from local artisans and raise funds for Roswell Arts Fund to enable public and performing arts to thrive!”
