Saturday features Popa Chubby, who brings his unique brand of “hard hitting, face melting, blues rock n’ funky soul,” Dana Fuchs with her “blisteringly raw vocals,” that make her fans spellbound and Hartford’s own Balkun Brothers, an American blues-rock band with a raw, soulful sound and plenty of energy.

Sunday it’s the Jazz Jam with the free-spirited and consummate chart-topping saxophonist, composer and producer, Euge Groove bringing his special blend of jazz, funk and soul. Also appearing is Cindy Bradley who is keeping the trumpet and flugelhorn alive and well. Her multitude of talents extend from traditional jazz to R&B and pop influenced contemporary jazz. And there’s more with local favorite, Latanya Farrell a gifted singer, songwriter and performer who moves audiences with passion, energy and a love for music.Pack your cooler and bring a lawn chair!
