Polka, Jazz, and Pottery

What do these things have in common? For those of you who know, it is the time for the Denton Art and Jazz Fest. Everyone has been trying to copy this but no one has been able to get that right amount of fun. Starting today, Friday April 26, through Sunday, April 28, is the spring festival that happens every year at Quakertown Park in Denton. With art and craft dealers, music, food and fun. So much to see with so little time, I have been year in and year out and figured out to go and look at the booths for the art and section it out. Get some food in and then sit and relax and listen to some of the great music. Now, on Friday is six time Grammy award winner David Sanborn, a jazz legend that has been around as long as I have been alive. Then on Saturday night, the main attraction is the infamous Blues Brothers Band, need I say more? OK well the iconic figures that were first started by SNL veterans the late John Belushi and Dan Akroyd, they are still alive straight from NYC. Also, try to get in on the grand finale with Brave Combo who is currently set on playing five fests in two days, that’s right two days. Now of course, UNT always has their Grammy award winning One O’Clock Jazz Band, who is always fun to listen to. THere are some great acts on the smaller stages, one of which is on Saturday at 6, Fingerprints, who have a nice laid back feel for those who just like to sit and listen. So check out all there is and try and move around the stages to see all of the great music. So, to recap, Denton Art and Jazz Fest, April 26 (that’s today) through Sunday April 29th with food, music, fun, kid stuff, art, you name it. David Sanborn, Blues Brothers, Brave Combo. Anyone caught saying there is nothing to do this weekend in Denton will be slapped, okay, just reminded about Jazz fest. But come out, bring friends, have fun, be safe and remember to participate in the largest hokey pokey in Texas. Have fun.
