BOOM Collective Presents 2011 NYC Winter Jazzfest: Saturday - Venue 1
Saturday, January 8
(Le) Poisson Rouge, New York NY
The annual NYC WINTER JAZZFEST is taking place at FIVE venues this year, over TWO nights. On Saturday night, the festival is also taking place at Kenny's Castaways, at Zinc Bar, at Sullivan Hall, and at The Bitter End.
The 2011 NYC Winter Jazzfest will feature over 60 different jazz groups during the Arts Presenters (APAP) conference. Similar to past years the festival will provide an opportunity for artists to showcase in front of presenters, promoters, talent buyers, educators, musicians and avid fans. Over 5000 arts professionals will be in New York City for the annual Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) conference from January 7-11. As there will be hundreds of showcases scheduled throughout the weekend around the city both at the Hilton Hotel and in alternative venues, Winter Jazzfest offers APAP conference attendees, and the general public, the opportunity to experience the best of today's new live jazz and experimental music in club venue settings. Once famed as the focal point of New York City's rich jazz and live music scene, Bleecker Street and the Village provide for an ideal festival experience with jazz and experimental music groups performing all night at five of the neighborhood's esteemed venues within close proximity of each other. On this night the 2011 NYC Winter Jazzfest will continue to redeem the rich jazz heritage of the Village and again will bring jazz fans back to Bleecker Street. The 2011 NYC Winter Jazzfest includes over 60 of today's most interesting jazz groups from New York, Brooklyn, Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia, France, Holland, Israel, Germany, Cape Verde, Mali, Cuba, Argentina, England and more.
