Eight bands. Six hours of continuous live music. Four different venues on Madison’s ultra hip East Johnson Street. And no cover charges. Strollin’ East Johnson Street will take place Friday, May 19, 5:30-11 p.m.
These are the makings “Strollin’ East Johnson Street” presented this year by the Greater Madison Jazz Consortium and Prime Urban Properties. Now in its fourth year, this popular “jazz stroll” series features a staggered performance schedule that makes it easy for attendees to stroll from venue to venue and sample many different musical styles. “Strollin’ East Johnson Street” is the tenth “jazz stroll” produced by the Jazz Consortium in a series that began three years ago at Schenk’s Corners on Madison’s East Side, and it’s been warmly embraced by each of its host communities.
Once again, the Consortium’s Nick Moran has booked an intriguing mix of bands showcasing the wide range of instrumental and vocal jazz styles regularly available to Dane County audiences. Visit Jazzinmadison.org for more information on jazz in your area.
