Urban Jazz Coalition and The Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center of Worthington are extremely proud to bring you another exciting “UJC Presents: LIVE @ The MAC” concert. We invite you to enjoy a romantic evening of contemporary jazz on Saturday, February 14, 2015 as we present our annual “Valentine’s Day” concert, featuring two dynamic artists that will set the mood to celebrate love’s holiday!!
Trumpet sensation Cindy Bradley brings her powerful and charismatic sound back to Columbus, where her previous performances have created an adoring Central Ohio fan base. Bradley was named the “Best New Artist” at the “2009 American Smooth Jazz Awards” and has since become one of the most in-demand artists on the contemporary jazz touring circuit. Cindy’s latest CD release on the UK based Trippin’ N’ Rhythm Music Label, “BLISS”, has also spent several weeks at the top of contemporary jazz music airplay charts.
Lansing, Michigan’s Phil Denny is an emerging artist on the urban contemporary jazz scene and his debut album, “Crossover”, in conjunction with his energizing and soulful stage presence has created a buzz that is rippling coast to coast. “Crossover” has been very successful on contemporary jazz radio and just happens to feature a cameo appearance by Cindy Bradley.
Columbus’ own Urban Jazz Coalition will once again be on the set, fresh from their critically acclaimed live performances aboard the Capital Jazz Festival Supercruise that recently sailed to Costa Rica, Panama, and Jamaica.
Cindy Bradley, Phil Denny, and Urban Jazz Coalition…the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day 2015!!

A Tribute to Jazz Cabaret
7pm – 10pm $55
The festival opens with an unforgettable evening of music, comedy and performance art.
Described as a multi-talented cabaret/jazz singer/pianist/entertainer, Roxanna Ward is notorious for her swinging renditions of classic tunes and vivacious stage presence. Also performing is the quick witted comedienne, Karen Williams known for her biting and esoteric humor, and who the San Francisco Chronicle says, “will be sure to tickle your funny bone!” Rounding out the night is the winner of Fifth Annual Gwendolyn Brooks Competition, and 2003 Lambda Literary Award nominee, CC Carter, an insightful, sensual, improvisational performance artist and jazz poet. The chemistry between the threesome is electrifying and their spontaneous energy will leave the audience wanting more.
