To say that the Austin Area Jazz Festival Season was a success would be an understatement. Music lovers from near and far came out to support LIVE music in the Austin Area.
We launched the Sunset Music Series, a FREE community event held at the Austin Independent School District's Performing Arts Center. The artists included in our first year were Latasha Lee and The BlackTies, The Peterson Brothers, Serafia, Boss Street, Quentin Moore, and All U Need.
New to the Festival line-up was the introduction of the Concert Series. We kicked off the Concert Series with Singer/Songwriter, Anthony David.
Prior to performing Anthony David performing to a SOLD OUT room of neo-soul/R&B music enthusiasts, he made a stop at the Texas Preparatory School, home of the East Austin Music Academy, to encourage young musical minds.
Closing out our Concert series was the incomparable, Lalah Hathaway, who took the AAJF stage for the first time. Ms. Hathaway, daughter of the late Donny Hathaway, mesmerized the crowd with her velvet voice. The crowd sang along while she sang all of her hits, including her remake of Anita Baker's "Angel".
Back by popular demand, R&B Crooner, Will Downing. No stranger to the AAJF stage, it took him no time to have the crowd swaying in their seats as he took the crows through a musical journey of his over 20 year catalog of music.
