Thank you! I have been waiting for something like this. Since Fridays at Sunset has gotten away from jazz, this is a welcomed event! When will the schedule with the day and time for each performer be announced?

Finally, a concert that is long overdue. I won't have to go to Tidewater or DC to see and experience good music. I look forward to the festivities for two days. Hope to see my fellow Richmonders.

I wish Rahsaan Patterson was in the line-up. Or maybe I just missed his name next to Lalah's?!?!

Hope I can win 2day pass here in MD. Would love to come to Va for this show.

Top notch talent, very reasonable ticket prices and a beautiful part of the country with beautiful people. That all adds up to a nice, realaxing weekend. I'm from NJ, my sister lives in Richmond and I have a good every time I visit. Have the festival every year and I'll be there every year.

Can't wait to see Norman Brown, Ledisi, Stanley Clarke - oh man! Also, those interested in something jazzy and a little more intimate should check out Matt Marshak & Marcus Anderson at Ft. Lee, up close and personal, on August 7. Details at or call 888-558-1777.
