Rambling Rose: Baltimore Jazz Festival Downtown
8/9/2019, 6 a.m.
Hello everyone, this is going to be an exciting, week. It includes a lot of fun, lots of music and entertainment. Just follow my lead.
Mr. White and the Astute Marketing Group LLC Promoter and Organizer of the “Baltimore Jazz Festival” are hosting this fantastic event. “The first of its kind, but promise it won’t be the last. When it comes to the essential part of entertainment history, people will often mention New York, New Orleans, Los Angeles, but forget that Baltimore has contributed to the musical landscape, especially in the terms of jazz with legends, such as James Hubert Blake, Billie Holiday, Cab Calloway, and Chick”Webb,” says Mr. White. “Yet the jazz community continues to thrive with the likes of John Lamkin, II, Kevin Jackson, Isaac Parham and Craig Alston.” The Baltimore Jazz Festival that is coming to Baltimore on Saturday, August 10 and Sunday, August 11from 12 noon until 5 p.m. looks to continue with the tradition showing off some of the best Charm City has to offer with live music, cocktails, crabs, brunch, wine tastings and a lot of fun.
At the “GAME” located 1400 Warner Street in Baltimore. The Jazz Festival is a musical showcase that celebrates some of Baltimore jazz legends and up and coming jazz greats. We will see you there. For more information, go to: www.baltimorejazzfestival.com or call: 443-200-4868.
Changing the subject for just a minute, I had a call from Eleanor Everett an alumnus of the Historic Frederick Douglass High School and she informed me that the Frederick Douglass Alumni Association, Inc. is currently seeking new members and striving to develop new leadership. She says that the nomination and election committee needs your support. The Historic Frederick Douglass Alumni Association is now in the process of identifying the selecting officers for the association for the next two-year term of office. The positions that need to be filled include: President, 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President, Recording Secretary, Treasurer, Financial Secretary, and Correspondence Secretary. So folks, if you are formerly a student of this historical school and want to help, call Eleanor Everett at 410-493-6077 or 410-233-5103.
Also, my dear friends, I need to see your face at the Avenue Bakery located 2229 Pennsylvania Avenue on the corner of Baker Street on Saturday, August 10, 2019 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. WHY? You ask? Well, because I asked you to, and it’s your time to support me, and what I do. My group “Dee & Signature Live” will perform on stage at the bakery courtyard. All you have to do is bring your own folding lawn chairs and enjoy. Food and drinks including beer and wine will be available for sale. It’s free and open to the public. Donations for the band are welcome. I will be the Mistress of Ceremony for this event. Also mark your calendar for September 7, 2019, same place, same time, but featuring my other group here in Baltimore; the Greg Hatza ORGANization.
