Hub City Music Festival

Hub City Jazz Festival, Inc. began in 2004 with modest goals. It was the brainchild of Allen McGriff, a local New Brunswick, NJ entrepreneur and Mason. Originally called the New Brunswick Jazz Festival, it was a fundraiser for the Progressive Temple Lodge. The festival was a two day weekend event featuring local artists including talented high school musicians. After 5 years, the festival outgrew its original venue and its mission’s expanded. The festival moved to downtown New Brunswick increasing its audience and diversifying the range of performers.

Now, after over ten years in existence the festival has grown into a 4 day destination event attracting jazz enthusiasts throughout the Northeast. During the first three days local and up-in-coming artists are still showcased at restaurant venues throughout downtown New Brunswick. The 4th day hosts the main event with a full day of entertainment provided by internationally-known jazz recording artists such as Alex Bugnon, Nelson Rangell, Gerald Albright, Roy Ayers, Hiroshima Euge Groove, Richard Elliott and Johnathan Butler.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
