1st Annual 7 Mile House Jazz Fest
The festival features 11 bands, an impressive array of the Bay Area's top Jazz musicians and ensembles. The festival will be hosted by KCSM Jazz 91 DJ, Alisa Clancy, and is sponsored by KCSM Jazz Radio, The California Jazz Conservatory, The Stanford Jazz Workshop, and Gelb Music.
A "Jazz Wall of Fame" will also be unveiled, featuring a permanent display of local musicians playing at 7 Mile House; photographed and curated by Jessica Levant. As a committed Jazz aficionado, Jessica Levant started photographing musicians at The 7 Mile House that morphed into the two volumes of 'Bay Area Jazz and Blusicians'.
