There is so much to celebrate in the Mid-Atlantic region - and one of the most anticipated of those celebrations is The Potomac Jazz & Seafood Festival!

For one Saturday in July, everybody at Colton's Point (overlooking the beautiful Potomac) becomes "family" - that's how the closeknit organizers feel about their guests.  Kim Cullins is the most articulate spokesperson for the Festival - and she will join us on Thursday, May 9th!  Kim works for the Museum Division of St. Mary's County Department of Recreation and Parks.  So, yes, she's our Amy Poehler :-D

Kim will talk about the urgency of getting your tickets - they go on sale on the first of June.  There are only 800 sold each year and they go QUICKLY!   We think that's going to be the case for this year, especially - because the acts are different than what you'd normally see at an outdoor venue.  AND this lineup is explosive!

Jessy J opens up the Festival at three - yes!  Following our sultry saxstress - from Columbus, Ohio - The Urban Jazz Coalition!  Seven musicians = 7th Heaven!  Try to stay in your seat (we dare you!) for the closing act: EAST BAY SOUL!  Indeed, true funk soldiers will gather in historic Maryland for a NEW historic occasion - the day that The Potomac Jazz & Seafood Festival punches a hole in the sky!  Greg Adams and his fabulous merry men are bringing their Oakland hybrid Jazz, Funk and Soul to fans who will be begging for mercy before the night is over.  We might as well call it The Potomac Jazz and Seafood Love Fest :-D

Greg Adams will be stopping by to say hello on Tuesday - and we don't know who ELSE might be joining him!  It's sure to be a great time - and a history lesson - wait until you hear the background of the Festival!

See you at one for the fun - The Chat Room is waiting.
