Music enthusiasts, or anyone who enjoys having a good time, may be happy to know that a jazz festival will return to Heritage Landing this summer. While the inaugural event in 2012 was the one-day Lakeshore Jazz Festival, this year’s festival features a new name – Alexander Zonjic’s Shoreline Jazz Festival — and an expanded schedule. The festival will be a two-day event this year, instead of the one-day event in 2012.

“I prefer to call the first one the pilot (festival),” said Alexander Zonjic, renowned flutist and co-organizer of the festival.

With a passion for jazz music and the Muskegon area, Hawkins Lang, the original organizer of the jazz festival in Muskegon, had an idea to create a music festival to celebrate the anniversary of his restaurant, Hawk’s Feathers and Finns. But what Lang didn’t expect while organizing the festival two years ago was the strong relationship he would begin to develop with Zonjic.

When the original headliner artist for the “pilot” jazz festival fell through, Lang came across Zonjic’s name, listened to his music and called Zonjic. Lang was surprised that Zonjic answered the phone. “I thought it was going to be his assistant (on the phone),” Lang said. From there, the two “just kind of hit it off.” Over time, Lang and Zonjic said they believe the festival will greatly benefit the area economically.

Zonjic, who has been both performing and working in the music festival business for more than 20 years, is excited about the Muskegon area. When he originally visited Muskegon, he said he knew Heritage Landing would be a wonderful place for a jazz festival. “My instincts kicked in and I thought ‘this would be so cool,’” Zonjic said. Zonjic said the idea of the festival is to have a large, cultural and diverse event in Muskegon.

Because the event is two days, Zonjic is hoping that jazz enthusiasts from Chicago and Detroit will visit the area. The music festival is scheduled to take place on Saturday, Aug. 23 and Sunday, Aug. 24. Tickets are expected to be available for purchase soon for the price of $25 per day.

The two-day jazz festival is set to have a total of 10 acts.

Four-time GRAMMY nominee Boney James has returned with a dynamic, genre-busting album “The Beat”. One of the most successful instrumental artists of our time with sales totaling over 3 million records, James’ new GRAMMY nominated project fuses his R&B/Jazz roots with Latin rhythm and percussion. In their review of “The Beat”, The New York Times said: “The relaxed charisma of Mr. James’ tone is one reason his approach works…. Another is his sturdy sense of phrase. Like Grover Washington, Jr., a pioneer in this field, he sounds at ease but alert, and he’s capable of striking an imploring tone without an overdose of saccharine.”

In addition to his GRAMMY nominations, James is a Soul Train Award winner and has been honored with two NAACP Image Award nominations for Best Jazz Album. He has accumulated four RIAA Certified Gold Records. Boney is also renowned for his compelling live performances. According to The Boston Globe: “Let’s make something perfectly clear: James is not a smooth jazz player. Yeah, he is often grouped with people like Kenny G and Najee, but his music is muscular and gritty….James swaggers across the stage like a blacktop hero draining trays on an overmatched opponent. He even weaves his way through the crowd, all but daring them not to have a good time.”
