Start Date: June 21, 2013
End Date: June 22, 2013
The 4th Annual Uptown Charlotte Jazz Fest returns to the Queen City with the sounds and rhythms of some of the world’s greatest jazz performers June 21-22, 2013, at the Time Warner Cable Uptown Amphitheatre.
Following up a nearly sold-out 3rd year with record attendance, the festival has truly become a “destination event” for true jazz enthusiasts, attracting attendees all along the Southeast including Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Tickets are on sale now.
The festival will begin on Friday, June 21, at 7:00 p.m. with smooth jazz artists 5th and York; two of smooth jazz’s biggest stars, Peter White and Euge Groove; and jazz/R&B/funk musician Brian Culbertson.
On Saturday, June 22, the festival will kick off with Grammy Award winning smooth jazz keyboardist and pianist Gregg Karukas. Saturday will also feature Sax in the City, which includes Soprano saxophonist Marion Meadows, smooth jazz saxophone icon Paul Taylor and the young, vibrant sax sensation, Vincent Ingala. Joining these superstars on the final evening is BWB, a jazz band named after the three members: guitarist Norman Brown, saxophonist Kirk Whalum and trumpeter Rick Braun.
“We at E2 Shows are all excited about 2013 lineup. Having 5th and York, Brian Culbertson, Peter White and Euge Groove start the festival on Friday, June 21st is an amazing way to get the weekend started. And then to follow up on Saturday, June 22nd with Gregg Karukas, Marion Meadows, Paul Taylor, Vincent Ingala and BWB, is an amazing way to celebrate our fourth year,” says Tammy Greene, “The Jazz Diva” and a Managing Member of E2 Shows, LLC.
