JU Jazz Festival Itinerary 24

Updated: Apr 3

The JU Jazz Fest is a relatively laidback affair. More than anything it's an opportunity for us to spend time with each other, chill, enjoy other bands, socialize, and put on a good performance. But there is an emphasis on putting on a good performance. You will find that it will be very important for everyone to be present to help put on a thrilling performance. Also-- College professors are watching! 😉
