Event description

Description

The American Jazz Walk of Fame will celebrate its sixth year of honoring jazz artists by immortalizing their names in 30-inch bronze medallions embedded in the sidewalks on 18th Street in the historic 18th & Vine Jazz District. The Induction Ceremony, open to the public and free of charge, will take place on 18th street between the Blue Room and the Jazz Museum at 6:30 where five medallions will be revealed. The five artists honored this year will be: Leon Brady, Oleta Adams, Quincy Jones, Dr. Nathan Davis and Harry Belafonte. Honorees and/or family representatives of the honorees will participate in the ceremony and receive replicas of the medallions. A concert featuring Oleta Adams, our hometown favorite and Raheem DeVaughn, grammy nominated singer, will follow the unveiling of the medallions.
