Location:lackawanna Plaza

AN ALL DAY BLOCK PARTY FEATURING ACCLAIMED HEADLINERS + OUR JAZZ HOUSE SUMMER STUDENTS + DJ BROTHER MISTE

Starting at 12 noon, the Lackawanna stage will feature 130 student musicians from five states and three countries taking part in the JAZZ HOUSE Summer Workshop. As the sun sets, the area debut of the trailblazing saxophonist Nicole Glover performs with her quartet followed by Winard Harper & Jeli Posse with its 9-piece band featuring tap dance, vocals, African percussion and high-energy swing and a positive message of unity.

Capping off the summer series on the evening of August 13, the town will once again get its groove on for an incredible, diverse and inter-generational boogie fest and one of
the largest street dance parties Montclair has ever seen, featuring DJ Brother Mister, aka CHRISTIAN McBRIDE, MONTCLAIR JAZZ FESTIVAL and JAZZ HOUSE KiDS artistic director and 8-time GRAMMY Award-winning bassist. McBride, a huge fan of this genre, will be spinning his old school soul and funk favorites all night long and, often,
playing along, embellishing the bass line with his masterful skill.
