The 2nd Annual A2 JAZZ FEST
Sept 8-9, 2017 Ann Arbor Distilling Co. Ann Arbor, MI Free! 

A FREE 2-Day Community-based Jazz Festival, on Sept 8th & 9th 2017 in Ann Arbor, Michigan,  the A2 JAZZ FEST will bring multiple generations of local jazz artists together with a supportive community of fans to create a great celebration of Jazz in Ann Arbor. 

About this ProjectWe at the A2 Jazz Fest are raising funds to cover costs for our 2nd annual jazz fest to be held on 9/8/17 from 7-10pm, and 9/9/17 from noon-8pm at the Ann Arbor Distilling Company, Ann Arbor, Michigan. To ensure the successful hosting of our FREE, community jazz festival, we need your help with costs that include musician compensation, sound equipment and engineers, advertising and operations costs (posters, volunteer support and clean up).

The A2 JAZZ FEST’s mission is to showcase and promote jazz by presenting live performances of original compositions and jazz standards by Michigan based artists. Organized by Ann Arbor bassist, composer and band leader Dave Sharp and a committee of dedicated volunteers, (http://www.davesharp.com) the A2 JAZZ FEST grew out of the weekly jazz series at the Old Town Tavern in downtown Ann Arbor, which began in November of 2014.

Nestled in the heart of the Water Hill neighborhood of Ann Arbor, the A2 JAZZ FEST will light up the Ann Arbor Distilling Company on Friday September 8th and 9th, with an eclectic line-up of some of Ann Arbor’s most exciting Jazz performers, representing a multi-generational commitment to the art of Jazz music. Our FREE community festival will showcase a phenomenal line up of artists that includes both established musicians and students from middle school right through to University level. This is in keeping with the A2 Jazz Fest’s commitment to provide spaces and opportunities that organically foster musical mentoring relationships between musicians. Festival supporters can expect music for every taste, from traditional well-loved standards to original compositions and explorations of important life themes. 

We hope that you will partner with us through making a financial contribution, sharing the Kickstarter with others and attending the festival with friends and family. Thanks for considering our project!!

Risks and challenges

The risks of this project are poor weather conditions and the University of Michigan football game interfering with the festival. There is rain cover within the structure of the Ann Arbor Distilling Co, and the event is on the north side of downtown Ann Arbor, opposite the football stadium on the south side of Ann Arbor.
