WEST ORANGE, NJ — New Jersey Arts Incubator recently announced that talented trombonist Jeff Bradshaw will headline the 13th annual OSPAC Jazz and Brew Fest. This year’s festival will feature an eclectic array of performers across varied styles and genres, from jazz legends to R&B royalty. With R&B/jazz sensation Alyson Williams, West Orange greats Nat Adderley Jr. and Jan Carden, and Montclair’s Jazz House Kids as part of the lineup, one of New Jersey’s most-popular jazz festivals will host live musical performances by top artists both local and national at OSPAC, 4 Boland Drive in West Orange, on Saturday, Sept. 17, from noon to 8 p.m. Admission is charged.
“We’re really excited to have so many national acts on our bill this year,” artistic Director David Peart said in a press release. “We’ve got ourselves a new and progressive vision for our jazz fest that we hope to grow and take into the future.”
With the backdrop of Crystal Lake’s skyline, the Oskar Schindler Performing Arts Center has served as a musical arena of sounds performed by jazz powerhouses who have traveled the world. The outdoor amphitheater also offers a full-sized stage, cuisine from around the world and a beer and wine garden that often serves as the guests’ favorite area to parlay. Produced by the New Jersey Arts Incubator and Black Star Entertainment Group, this year’s guests will be in awe of the level of performances at the 13th Annual OSPAC Jazz and Brew Fest.
