Update #3

WE DID IT!!

1 comment
WE DID IT! The creation of the first annual Center City Jazz Festival is underway. Currently, I'm on tour in California, but I'm working remotely to tie up loose ends so I can begin marketing the festival in earnest. The festival's website will be updated during the next few days during which a full list of performers and venues, a list of sponsors, and a page for online ticket purchases will be added. Soon I will also send out information regarding your advanced ticket purchases.  Thanks again for all the kind words and positivity. All of your continued support will be needed in weeks leading up to the festival.  -Ernest
