Boston Scenes 9-13-18: Boston Jazz Festival!
The 8th Annual Boston Jazz Festival took place on Saturday afternoon, August 25, 2018 at Maritime Park in Boston’s Seaport neighborhood. The festival was produced by Boston event producer Jim Braxton of Boss-Ten Productions. It was a great afternoon of Jazz, Soul and Blues. The festival was MC’d by Bonnie Johnson of WICN Public Radio and musical acts included Richard Evans, Albino Mbie, Zeke Martin, Bradley Bartlet Roche, Pat Braxton, ZYG 808 and The Groovalottos. Highlights of the festival were an electrifying set by Albino Mbie and Pat Braxton’s Tribute, with enthusiastic audience participation, to Aretha Franklin. The festival will be expanding to two days next year! Thank you to everyone who put together and performed at the festival. The festival was FREE thanks to our sponsors Capital One NA, Larry J ’s BBQ Cafe, the Boston Foundation, the No Name Restaurant, Elmundo Boston, Yotel Boston, Angel Alba Entertainment, Encore Boston Harbor, CFS Real Estate and the Bay State Banner.
