Queens Jazz OverGround in partnership with Culture Lab LIC Present

QUEENS JAZZ OVERGROUND FESTIVAL

 Streaming Live Feb 9, 16 & 23, 7:30-9pm 

The Queens Jazz OverGround (QJOG), a collective that promotes jazz performance and education in the borough of Queens, has partnered with Culture Lab LIC to present the Streaming Winter Jazz Fest, a free series of performances featuring Queens-based jazz musicians.  The performances will stream live on the last three Tuesday evenings of February (Feb. 9th, 16th, and 23rd). 

 

After the Covid-19 pandemic forced QJOG to cancel their annual Spring Jazz Fest they adapted and partnered with Culture Lab LIC to highlight the talents of many renowned and emerging jazz instrumentalists and vocalists in the borough of Queens.  Each evening will feature two professional Queens-based bands, with performances by winners of an NYC student jazz contest at intermission.
