(Published: February 26, 2010)
The 6th Annual Provincetown Jazz Festival™ will be held on August 13 - 14, 2010 at the Provincetown High School in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
For 2010, the Festival will celebrate the survival and revival of New Orleans Jazz as we commemorate the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. A portion of the proceeds from the Jazz Festival will be donated to the New Orleans Musicians Clinic which provides a health clinic for the uninsured jazz musicians and artists in New Orleans, and was founded and is directed by Bethany and Johann Bultman of Provincetown and New Orleans.
On Friday, August 13, 8:00pm, three jazz greats will be featured:
• GREG ABATE - Internationally Acclaimed Jazz Saxophonist.
• DANE VANNATTER - Award Winning Jazz Vocalist.
• JANICE FRIEDMAN - New York Pianist & Vocalist.
• With Chris Rathbun on Bass & Bart Weisman on Drums.
On Saturday, August 14, 8:00pm, there will be a tribute to New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz, featuring PAUL SANCHEZ on Vocals & Guitar with STEVE AHERN on Trumpet. Paul Sanchez is the winner of Songwriter of the Year from OffBeat Magazine. He was born in New Orleans and has lived and worked there most of his life. Paul and his family survived Hurricane Katrina and he lost much of his written music in the flood. His new CD Farewell To Storyville has just been released on Threadhead Records. Paul's trip is sponsored by Threadhead Records, a fan-funded and volunteer run record company dedicated to helping New Orleans musicians rebuild their lives.
New to the festival and opening for the concert will be the BERKLEE RISING STARS featuring CLAY LYONS on Sax and MATT JOSEPH on Trumpet.
