The River Raisin Jazz Festival 2011

One of the coolest things our Monroe community has is its annual River Raisin Jazz Festival. It's in a beautiful setting by the river, and - unbelievably - it's free! The quality of the performers is world-class. Last year, for example, we saw saxophonist David Sanborn, who was accompnaied by the phenomenal, jaw-dropping Hammond B-3 virtuosity of Joey DeFrancesco. Crazy wow!

Probably 10,000 people will be there Saturday evening to see Kenny G accompany Alexander Zonjic.
