Does anyone know where the jazz happens at Medgar Evers?
  • This banner leaves that out:


    While it isn't a huge campus, I would like some more specificity. Does it happen in the parking lot this banner is hanging on?

    What time does it start and end?
  • It used to be in the front where the construction is happening but they moved it back to the courtyard area... you can enter on the side south side that faces the Ebbetts field apartments.  
  • Thanks.

    7 PM?

    Medgar Evers College (MEC) presents the 16th Annual Jazzy Jazz Festival! Beginning July 11th and every summer Friday thereafter, live bands will be staged outside on Crown Street, alongside the new Science Center at the corner of 1638 Bedford Avenue.
    The 2014 Jazzy Jazz Festival performances will take place from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM and include a host of exciting performers.
  • It's going to be in the corner area near the rose bushes.
  • Thanks.

    I suspect I am not the only one who is interested in attending, yet perplexed that basic info did not make it onto the banner.

  • Went there today. It was a nice little outside gathering on Crown and Bedford. Most people in the audience seemed to be > 40 years of age when I was there. Afro-caribean-latin feel. There were seats as well. Some people were dancing. It was fun...will probably go back next time.

Howdy, Stranger!
