Description: Over 40 of the region’s best Jazz musicians, playing everything from Latin to fusion to swing, will take the stage on Pier 3 on New Bedford’s historic waterfront during the 2nd Annual New Bedford JazzFest on Saturday, June 15th. The Fest includes music on two stages starting promptly at 2pm, running through 7pm.

Featured at the event will be saxophonist Dino Govoni, playing with both the Horseneck Trio and the UMass Dartmouth Faculty All-Stars. Govoni records on the Whaling City Sound label and has recorded or toured with such diverse talents as Randy Brecker, the Manhattan Transfer, Arturo Sandoval, the Boston Pops and Frankie Valli. When he is not recording, he is a teacher at UMass Dartmouth and at the Berklee School of Music in Boston.

Attendees will also enjoy performances by singer Dori Legge with the John Harrison Quartet, the fusion jazz of the Marcus Monteiro Quartet, and the UMass Dartmouth Latin Vision Ensemble led by Chris Poudrier. Finishing the evening’s program will be the swinging 17 piece Southcoast Jazz Orchestra, spotlighting vocalist Diane Carey.

ArtWorks! of New Bedford has partnered with JazzFest to create the Artists’ Colony, a display of original art and handmade crafts for sale. An assortment of food trucks will be on site, along with beverages including beer from local brewers Buzzards Bay Brewing and Maine’s Shipyard Brewing Company.
