In 1988, Eric Essix’s debut national release as a solo recording artist entitled First Impressions, came out on the Nova Records jazz label. Very soon after, he performed his first concert on December 29th of that year at Grundy’s Music Room in Birmingham, AL.

Joining him onstage for this landmark event, will be a stellar lineup of artists with whom he has recorded and shared the stage over the course of his career including jazz piano great, Alex Bugnon; trumpeter, Joey Sommerville, singer, Tracy Hamlin, members of his ever popular 90’s ensemble, Modern Man and his current touring band, the Eric Essix Group!

The Steel City Jazz Festival for 2018 has been postponed. The festival has been rescheduled for June 2019. All tickets for the previously scheduled Steel City Jazz Festival 2018 for June 1st and 2nd will be honored in 2019. Ticketholders who are unable to attend the rescheduled festival in 2019 can get a full refund from their point of purchase.

Festival organizer Cedric Allen says, “We wanted to provide festival goers with a new venue in 2018 that included a number of improvements such as shelter from inclement weather, easier access to parking, better restrooms, more food vendors, an improved sound system, stronger security, and more. However, it is abundantly clear to us that you preferred our previous venue for our Jazz festival which has drawn thousands in the four years of operation.” Allen added, “We thank our fans for their input, apologize for any inconvenience, and commit to making every effort to implement the aforementioned changes and bring you an even better line-up in 2019 for the best Steel City Jazz Festival experience ever.”

They will be updating the 2019 festival on their website http://www.SteelCityJazzFestbham.com as festival details are finalized. Also, look for upcoming performances, interviews, new photo galleries and videos as they plan for the Steel City Jazz Festival 2019.
