Jazz At Drew is an all-day outdoor fundraising and community concert produced and hosted by Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science (CDU) and features some of the most prolific names in Jazz and R&B. Jazz At Drew’s emphasis on premier talent in South LA with international appeal has been the distinguishing factor that separates the event from larger Jazz festivals in Southern California. More importantly, it displays Jazz and R&B in a range of styles all while being surrounded by a burgeoning and ethnically diverse community.

This year’s concert series will be held on October 6 from 12 pm – 9 pm.

Performances by: After 7, The S.O.S. Band, Jazz Funk Soul featuring Jeff Lorber, Paul Jackson Jr, and Everette Harp, The Pete Escovedo Orchestra, DW3, The Crusaders and more on the campus.
