The Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival is a three day cultural celebration featuring hundreds of musicians, delicious cuisine, artisans from the region, amusement rides and engaging family activities. The event started fifteen years ago as a one day dedication of Gahanna’s new Creekside Park area and the beginning of Olde Gahanna’s revitalization. The Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival has experienced unprecedented growth in attendance and has truly become more than the celebration of music, food and fun; it has become a premiere family summer event.

Artists will be announced on their website. Last year Cindy Bradley with the Urban Jazz Coalition performed on this event.

US to become the seventh most-played track on Contemporary Jazz radio that year. Their sound lies at the forefront of what has been dubbed Nu Jazz – taking the best of contemporary jazz and pop styles and aligning them to produce an improvisational dance-infused sound. The Toronto-based group draws from a variety of sources to make their music
happen, including found sounds, field recordings and sound effects alongside their finely crafted studio recordings.

In 1988 he moved to London, later on became an acclaimed session player in Tokyo and landed in Los Angeles in the late 90ies. He stayed there for 12 years playing for music royalty such as Sting, Celine Dion, Rod Stewart, Cher and George Benson. Actually, Marc lives in Madrid.
