BDJF: last-minute cancellation

June 10, 2011


A last-minute note from the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival this afternoon:

————–

Posted on June 10, 2011

We regret to inform you that tonight’s performance has been cancelled. Poncho Sanchez and His Latin Jazz Band featuring Terence Blanchard are unable to arrive here in Burlington due to travel complications.

The Meet-the-Artist session with Bob Blumenthal scheduled for 6:30 is also cancelled.

All tickets will be refunded to the original method of purchase. Please allow one week for refunds to be processed. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Flynn Tix box office at 802-86-FLYNN.  

We apologize for the cancellation and we sincerely hope you’ll join us at future Burlington Discover Jazz Festival events.

Please note: The Vermont All State Jazz Ensemble will play on the Church Street Marketplace stage in front of City Hall from 8-9 pm.

————–

I’ll offer a suggestion now that if you bought tickets for this concert please consider not accepting a refund, in favor of forfeiting the ticket cost as a small donation to the Festival.

This situation is not the artists’ fault, though their contract may still require that they be paid (something) despite the cancelled appearance. This is not the Jazz Festival’s fault, but now they are losing income from one of their big headliner acts *and* may still be under some obligation to pay the artists at least a percentage of their performance fees. I don’t know, but it’s a good guess this could be a considerable loss to the Festival. As an organization that provides so much for free to the community, this seems like a small gesture of good will that could be made to give a little back.

Just my thought.

jazz, get ready for it

June 1, 2011

This week I had the pleasure of talking on VPR’s Vermont Edition about some of the special events happening at this year’s Burlington Discover Jazz Festival.

The Festival ‘unofficially’ kicks off tomorrow night with the traditional first night reception. Then – we’re off. For the next ten days after that all of downtown will be jammed and jamming in formal and very informal ways. Street musicians and sit-down concerts, international headliners and talented locals are all part of the mix along with the usual dose of the completely unexpected. Here’s the schedule…but keep in mind, this is only part of the story. You just have to come and experience the rest of it yourself.

Over at The Radiator 105.9FM we’re also giving away tickets to lots of the Jazz Festival shows including on my own World of Music this coming Monday, from 3-5pm. Can’t wait to set some lucky folks up with seats to Poncho Sanchez and the Roy Hargrove/Roberta Gambarini shows!

Keep an eye out here for regular updates through the festival.

This is gonna be funnnnn.
