A taste of the 2011 Easton Jazz/Music Festival - Johnathan DuBose Jr.
Dear Musicians and Supporters,
Included below is the link to a video by (Bridgeport's own) the great Johnathan DuBose Jr. It's included as a sample of what's in store at the 2011 Easton Jazz/Music Festival.
WARNING: "WHILE YOU WAIT" VIDEO OF JOHNATHAN DUBOSE IS HIGHLY ADDICTIVE, IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED NOT TO EXCEED 2 REPLAYS WITHIN A 24 HOUR PERIOD! SIDE EFFECTS INCLUDE EXTREME RELEASE OF DOPAMINE, ELATION, AND HEIGHTENED INSPIRATION. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!!
With purpose and determination I promise to provide the most innovative (jazz, blues, & gospel), awe inspiring music event possible right here in Easton at beautiful Pond Field this summer (and well into the future).
Yes, our festival is in its 2nd year, and were still new on the festival scene in New England. But, the fact is we have world class musicians right here in our own backyard that need to be unearthed and brought to light for everyone to enjoy. As festival producer I can assure you I'll utilize every means possible to bring these artists forward (as I have for the past 8 years with The Jazz Guild).
There's greater power in live performance. The big screen 1080 pi with the bose sound system will never touch your soul in the way that live performance can. The vibration, smell, sound, intensity, and spiritual elevation can never be duplicated from the confines of the family room while sitting in your Lazy Boy. You've got to come experience the magic. Bring the family and friends along- they'll later thank you for it- trust me!
As I stand here on the ground floor (in the email room) I'm asking all of you to help bring this event to the "top floor" of the festival world so we can make it better year after year. We deserve the best!
I'll need you all in order to achieve this goal. So, please mark your calendar August 28 noon to 7:00 pm(right now), reach out to others and spread the word.
