Mychael Wright, founder of the Selby Ave JazzFest and owner of Golden Thyme Coffee Café, recently announced the entertainment lineup for the 2014 Selby Ave JazzFest. “This will be a good one,” stated Wright in regards to this year’s entertainers. “We’re going to have a few folks who have been with us for a number of years, a rising star within the genre and one very special surprise.”

The 2014 Selby Ave JazzFest lineup on the Allina Health Entertainment Stage will include:

• Dick and Jane’s Big Brass Band

• Walker West Music Academy’s Urban Legends of Jazz

• Brio Brass

• Jazz Heritage Showcase

• Danny Kusz

• Harvey Mason (headliner)

“This year’s showcase is a two-parter,” stated Wright. “First off will be Jason and the Q who will be taking a nostalgic look at the 1920s and ’30s. We’ll take a break for our annual awards ceremony, then follow things up with Dick and Jane Revisited, featuring Twin Cities legendary vocalist Maurice Jacox. This is panning out to be a very special showcase!”

Besides a free day of great entertainment, JazzFest also features a variety of great food vendors (from ethnic specialties to state fair food with a soul food twist), family activities and live artist demonstrations. “There’s plenty to do to make a full day of things,” added Wright.

The 13th annual Selby Ave JazzFest will take place from 11 am — 8 pm on Saturday, September 13 at the intersection of Selby and Milton in St. Paul. For more information, interested parties can visit the event’s website at www.selby avejazzfest.com. Admission is free.
