A Call for Musicians: Tri-C JazzFest seeks Bands for Outdoor Stage Performances


CLEVELAND: Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) wants to put Northeast Ohio musicians in the spotlight at this summer’s Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland.


Text Box:  

An online application opened today for bands wanting to play the festival’s outdoor Strassman Insurance Stage. Sixteen acts will be selected to entertain JazzFest crowds between 3 p.m. and midnight June 26-27, 2020 the Friday and Saturday of festival weekend at Playhouse Square.


Applications will be accepted at www.tri-c.edu/jazzfestcall through March 21.


A committee of music industry experts will select the individuals or groups for the stage lineup. A variety of musical genres will be considered, ranging from jazz (of course) to blues, R&B, funk, gospel, jam band and reggae.


Last year, the committee vetted nearly 100 applicants before finalizing the selections.


“The outdoor stage is a ‘Best of Cleveland’ showcase,” said Terri Pontremoli, festival director. “We love the vibrancy and the interaction between the musicians and the fans.”


The 41st annual Tri-C JazzFest runs June 25-27. The festival includes nine ticketed concerts inside the historic theaters at Playhouse Square, plus the free outdoor shows and other activities.


Visit www.tri-cjazzfest.com for a schedule of ticketed shows. The 2020 lineup includes Take 6, Kirk Whalum, Angélique Kidjo, Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Punch Brothers, John Mayall, Walter Trout, Charles Lloyd and many others.


Festival passes — which offer VIP seating to all nine ticketed concerts, plus other perks — are now on sale. Cost is $275, a $175 savings compared to buying single tickets to all nine shows. Visit www.jazzfest2020.eventbrite.com to purchase.


Individual tickets will go on sale April 1 through the Playhouse Square Box Office at 216-241-6000 or at www.playhousesquare.org.


The 41st annual Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland is presented by KeyBank and made possible by Cuyahoga Community College, the National Endowment for the Arts, Ohio Arts Council, Strassman Insurance Services Inc. and a growing list of donors and members.
