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.

Pizza Express Jazz Club may well be smaller than some of the capitol’s other live rooms but its classy interior and close audience to stage proximity ensures that each gig brings the best out of both. As a restaurant chain founded in the 1940 by Peter Boizot MBE, whose trip to Florence inspired him to create a pizza chain that prided itself on serving fresh, handmade pizzas, Pizza Express has long supported jazz in some of its larger restaurants around the UK.

Yet the flagship Dean Street London restaurant remains the jewel in the company’s crown and since its re-launch in 1996 (conducted by Van Morrison), has proved itself as a consistently capable of booking some of the biggest names in jazz, with a sensibility for promoting rising stars and legends alike. Often a place where some of today’s household names made their UK debuts or exclusive performances, the likes of Diana Krall, Brad Mehldau, Danilo Perez, Avishai Cohen, Mose Alllison, Peter White, Richard Bona, Rokia Traoré and a certain Jamie Cullum made an early showcase, while Norah Jones made her European debut, with Amy Winehouse and Peter Cincotti making early important performances there – Sting even took to the stage for an impromptu version of ‘Round Midnight once – such is the venue’s credibility and popularity.

Marc Antoine will be from Wednesday June 23 to Saturday 26 at “Pizza Express Jazz Club”, London. Seats are on sale now. Please call 02074394962. Marc Antoine’s love of Spain is clearly evident in his music and with the addition of Joe Becket on percussion you really won’t be able to sit still. Marc will of course be playing his greatest hits, plus a track or two from his forthcoming CD. Also in the line up will be the UK smooth jazz ambassador Oli Silk, plus Incognito’s Tony Mason on drums and Otto Williams on bass.
