Enjoy a full day of live jazz outdoors on Mamaroneck Avenue at Main Street in White Plains, NY! Performances start at Noon and continue to 5:30pm.
Featured artists include:

Lagond Music All-Stars | Noon-12:45pm
Lagond Music School presents a lineup of some of Westchester County’s finest young musicians. The ensemble performs a range of music from Latin jazz to danceable funk.

Art Bennett and The Organic Ensemble | 1:05-1:50pm
Saxophonist Art Bennett was born and raised in White Plains, where he first began studying jazz. Active in the “Loft Jazz” movement of the 1970s in New York City, he has performed with greats Lonnie Smith, Rashied Ali, Roy Brooks, Willian Parker and many others.

Mwenso & The Shakes | 2:10–3pm
Taking from the stylings of Fats Waller, Muddy Waters, James Brown and other American musical legends, Mwenso & The Shakes put on an electrifying show. Immigrating from Sierra Leone, London, South Africa, Greenwich Village, Madagascar, France, Jamaica and Hawaii, the Shakes now call Harlem their home.

Camille Thurman with The Darrell Green Trio | 3:20–4:10pm
Camille Thurman is a “rising star” (Downbeat Magazine) who excels in both saxophone – from which energy soars, and vocals – from which she embraces a soulful dynamism and spirited “Fitzgerald-esque” (All About Jazz) scat. She has performed for audiences throughout the world.

Alphonso Horne and The Gotham Kings | 4:30–5:30pm
Two-time Grammy Award-nominated trumpeter Alphonso Horne has put together a band that weaves the sound of New Orleans into a rich musical fabric that demonstrates the history of the trumpet and the story of jazz. Inspired by the music of King Oliver Creole Jazz Band, The Gotham Kings use the virtuosity of the young Louis Armstrong and innovative genius of King Oliver to take you on a journey of sound that encompasses rags, stomps, shouts and funk.
There will also be local restaurants from White Plains and beyond providing delicious bites for sale throughout the day.



The 8th annual JazzFest White Plains features an impressive lineup of internationally renowned musicians spanning a weeklong celebration of jazz, culture and community from September 11-15, 2019. The five-day festival produced by ArtsWestchester, The City of White Plains and The White Plains BID is presented this year by Bank of America.
