Beginning with a few local bands playing on a sunny afternoon in Riverview Fisk Park in Jersey City Heights with the stunning backdrop of the Manhattan skyline, the festival has now expanded to a week-long event featuring performances all over Hudson County. In 2016, we quadrupled our size and expanded from one event to over 40 events featuring local and internationally known talent. The free-to-the-public flagship event featured two stages, an open beer garden, a vintage flea market, and numerous food trucks. Past performers include the Donny McCaslin Quartet (of David Bowie’s Blackstar album), Slavic Soul Party (Balkan Brass Band), Típica 73 (a legendary salsa band from the Fania label), Dave Stryker, Pete Bernstein, Gretchen Parlato, Winard Harper and many more. Hundreds of musicians perform throughout the week at numerous local establishments and non-traditional venues. See Less
