More About Tri-C JazzFest

The 40th Annual Tri-C JazzFest runs June 27-29 in the historic theaters of Playhouse Square, with free performances outside on U.S. Bank Plaza, under the world’s largest permanent crystal chandelier, over the weekend.

For four decades, JazzFest has admirably carried out their mission to foster the history and nurture the future of jazz, provide educational opportunities for students of all ages and in all walks of life, and bring world-class jazz to Cleveland.

Unsurprisingly, this year’s lineup continues the festival’s storied tradition, featuring such acts as:


Tower of Power is celebrating their 50th year with a new album and a tour featuring all their hits including “You’re Still a Young Man,” “So Very Hard to Go,” and “What is Hip?” The soaring horns and infectious bass riffs will start the festival off with a bang on Thursday, June 27 at 7:45 p.m in the State Theatre.


The accomplished banjo artist Béla Fleck has been playing with the Flecktones for over 30 years, and returns with the original lineup of Victor Wooten, Roy “Future Man” Wooten and Howard Levy. They return in support of a new album, re-energized and ready to bring audiences to their feet Friday, June 28 at 7:45 p.m. in the State Theatre.


A 2009 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Cleveland native Bobby Womack is known for such hits as “Across 110th Street” and “That’s the Way I Feel About Cha.” Bandleader, national jazz spokesman and virtuoso bassist Christian McBride return to his funk and soul roots to celebrate Womack Saturday, June 29 at 6:00 p.m. in the Ohio Theatre
