We speak with Jazz House Kids board member Susan Gifford and her husband Chris. These Montclair residents have been extremely active with Jazz House Kids and the Montclair Jazz Festival, which is celebrating 10 years this year! If you like music and you love to move to the groove, there’s nowhere else you want to be this week and next than right here in town.
The Festival runs through August 10th featuring over 250 incredible musicians like the six-time Grammy Award winner Christian McBride, the spouse of Melissa Walker who founded of Jazz House Kids. Together they’ve built the Montclair Jazz Festival which this year will feature artists like Bettye Lavette, Eddie Palmieri, Mark Whitfield and Quincy Phillips, and of course, the amazing Jazz House Kids, just to name a few. The festival is being held in venues throughout the town - with the grand finale concert happening on Sunday August 10th from noon until 9pm at Nishuane Park.
