Comfest 2015 – Jazz Performances

The 43rd annual Community Festival is finally upon us! Running Friday, June 26th, through Sunday, June 28th, Comfest includes three days of some of the best local live music from rock to soul, bluegrass, hip-hop, and of course jazz. Columbus jazz fans are treated to an entire stage dedicated to the jazz art-form and periodically some jazz performances may be seen on other stages. The “I Wish You Jazz” stage will be the place to be for jazz fans including a return of Jim Maneri’s “Flypaper” on Friday night, and a Sunday tribute to the late great saxophonist, Gene Walker. Happy Comfest!
