Labor Day Weekend Music Festival Celebrates 7 Years of Jamming at Riverfront Park
Saxophonist Boney James to Headline 7th Annual Music City Jazz, Blues & Heritage Festival
Anyone who is a fan of jazz, soul, R&B, gospel, reggae or blues won't want to miss this unique musical weekend. Nashville's Riverfront Park nestled on the bank of the Cumberland River with its lush greenery and the historic backdrop of the Downtown District provides the perfect setting for the Music City Jazz, Blues & Heritage Festival. For the SEVENTH YEAR, the melodious sounds of Jazz, Blues, Reggae, Funk, Gospel, Soul, and R&B will be featured in a musical collage for all to enjoy. The 7th Annual Music City Jazz, Blues & Heritage Festival offers nationally renowned artists along with local flavors. Music has a way of bridging cultural gaps that exist in our society. The two-day Festival will take place over the Labor Day Weekend Holiday 9/5-6/2009.
Thanks to the hard work and collaboration of many, this weekend-long event founded & produced by Nothing But Love, LLC, continues with the intent for all music lovers to gather in a family atmosphere, hear great music, and celebrate diversity in a safe and fun environment. The family-oriented event Showcases the Harmonious Diversity of Music City.
A portion of the proceeds from the festival will benefit the Nothing But Love (NBL) Foundation, Inc., a non-profit 501c3 organization and other deserving non-profit organizations.
This year's featured performer is Boney James, one of the most respected and best-selling instrumental artists of our time. Boney James continues to consolidate his longstanding reputation as a major force in both the worlds of Contemporary Jazz and R&B.
Called "the best kept secret in today's music scene", Boney James has "quietly" released four RIAA certified Gold albums, been honored with a Soul Train Award and earned an NAACP Image Award nomination. He has also been nominated for two consecutive Grammy's in the "Best Pop Instrumental Album" category. With a live show that Radio & Records called "a must see" and Variety said "raised the roof," Boney affirms, "The communal experience of playing live - that's why I became a musician in the first place. It's exciting and liberating. It never gets old for me."
Boney James and many more dynamic performers are sure to rock Riverfront Park as we celebrate Seven (7) Years of Jamming!
