Considered one of Kenosha’s favorite music events for the diversity of its lineup and its idyllic Lake Michigan setting, HarborPark Jazz and Blues (HPJB) has welcomed many national jazz and blues artists and attracts thousands of concertgoers to Kenosha’s scenic lakefront. Before the audience enjoys the big band sound of the KUSD Jazz All-Stars and our smooth jazz headliner Eric Marienthal, they will be dancing, singing and clapping their hands to the classic jazz and R&B sounds of “Funk Bunker” and the soulful Chicago style blues of Toronzo “Bluesman” Cannon at the all new “Music Oasis”. The Music Oasis is a new intimate performance area created to give the audience a unique chance to be-up close and personal with the bands.

Come settle into your lawn chair or stretch out on a blanket with a nice beverage from the Wine and Beer garden, snack on your favorite appetizers or enjoy any of the culinary vendors. Visit the Texas Roadhouse VIP Lounge to enjoy a succulent catered meal. Either way, bring your friends and family, reward employees, or invite important customers out for an unforgettable day of GREAT MUSIC, GREAT FOOD & GREAT FUN, all for a great cause.

The 9th annual HarborPark Jazz & Blues festival is produced by the volunteer efforts of the Marylou and Arthur F. Mahone Fund. Proceeds benefit the Fund’s Career Exploration Organization (CEO) initiative, which provides academic and career coaching to minority youth ages 14-17 and supports breast and cervical cancer initiatives for women in treatment. The fund has provided more than 150 students with a college scholarship and provided financial assistance to over 300 women for their breast or cervical cancer treatment.
Hope to see you there!
