The Richmond Jazz Festival at Maymont is in its 6th year and it just keeps getting hotter! Local and international jazz artists grace the stage for the three-day long festival. The event kicked off Friday, August 7th at the historic Hippodrome Theater in Jackson Ward, with a festive crowd “second lining” down Broad Street, led by the St. Paul’s men’s choir and New Orleans’ Rebirth Brass Band. The festival moved into the 100-acre public park, Maymont, on Saturday for the duration of the festival.

I made the event a combination of work and play–¬†some of my very favorite artists were headlining this year’s festival:

Anthony Hamilton, RVA Jazz Festival at Maymont

Anthony Hamilton threw it up and took it all of the way down at the Richmond Jazz Festival on Sunday evening.

New Edition, RVA Jazz Festival at Maymont

New Edition kicked it old-school on Saturday night.
