Crowned “Detroit’s Queen of the Blues” in 2015, Thornetta Davis, a multi-talented international singer/songwriter from Detroit, ia the winner of over 30 Detroit music awards. She first gained attention in 1987 when she became back up singer for the Detroit soul band “Lamont Zodiac and The Love Signs.” Shortly after, the lead singer left the band and the name changed to “The Chisel Brothers featuring Thornetta Davis.” In 1996, Thornetta recorded her first solo album “Sunday Morning Music” on the Seattle based label “Sub Pop” which received a rave revue in the national Entertainment Weekly magazine. Her song “Cry” from that album was featured on the HBO hit “The Sopranos”. Thornetta has opened for legendary blues and R&B greats such as Ray Charles, Gladys Knight, Smokey Robinson, Etta James, Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Junior Wells, Lonnie Brooks, Johnnie Johnson and many more…her history is extensive and her performances are memorable… and Noel Night would not be the same without her.

HISTORY

The Detroit International Jazz Festival was founded in 1980 by Robert McCabe and the Detroit Renaissance.
Along with the Detroit Grand Prix and the International Freedom Festival, the Festival was intended to bring people into the city and to provide all segments of the population with world-class entertainment.From 1980 to 1991, the Festival flourished through a partnership with the highly regarded international jazz festival in Montreux, Switzerland.
In 1991, the Festival merged with Detroit’s Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts, where it resided until September 2005.In March 2005, Detroit philanthropist and Mack Avenue Records Chairman Gretchen Valade emerged as a major sponsor of the Festival.
With additional support from the Knight Foundation, the Festival expanded in all aspects.
Its new footprint, covering three blocks, provided two additional stages and more space for food vendors and other activities.

- Detroit Jazz Festival - 2017 - Map -

Looking to attract new audiences to jazz and the Festival, in 2011, jazz musician Chris Collins was appointed as artistic director and has since taken on the role of president of the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation.
With Collins’ vision and the support of the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation Board of Directors – led by Chair Gretchen Valade – the Foundation has continued to integrate new and exciting artistic elements and opportunities into the signature event, in addition to year-round programming.

- Detroit Jazz Festival - 2017 - Schedule Page 01 -

- Detroit Jazz Festival - 2017 - Schedule Page 02-

The Detroit Jazz Festival is now managed and produced by the Detroit International Jazz Festival Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 2006.
Through the generosity of Detroit philanthropist and Mack Avenue Records Chairman Gretchen Valade, the Foundation also established a significant endowment to support Festival operations.
The staff and advisory committee continuously work to raise the balance of operating costs through corporate partnerships, contributions and earned-income opportunities.

 - Detroit Jazz Festival - Img-PNG-xPlr-J-DJF-Bnr-B02-17I-

For nearly 40 years, the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation has celebrated Detroit’s rich history of jazz music by providing year-round concerts and educational programming, and of course, organizing the world’s largest free jazz festival over Labor Day weekend.

History of Labor Day Festival,
Hamtramck

37 years of fun

Hamtramck City Festival was first proposed in 1980.

The Dodge Main factory had just closed.

Then-Mayor Robert Kozaren, with the help of a group of dedicated citizens, conceived having a huge city festival that would  boost the spirits of the residents, and show  that Hamtramck  could smile in the face of a crisis.

The first festival was planned for late September.

From the start it was a huge success, with over 100,00 people attending.
People from across the area came to the festival
to enjoy the music, food, crafts and all manner of fun.

The festival was moved up to Labor Day to take advantage of the better weather and longer holiday weekend.

Hamtramck History

Founded in the wake of the American Revolution, Hamtramck remained largely unknown for more than 100 years as a dusty farming community on the edge of Detroit, Michigan.
In 1910, the town took a new direction with the opening of John and Horace Dodge’s auto factory.
By 1930, it had a population of 56,000 –
one of the most densely populated cities in the United States.

Polish immigrants made up the majority of this  population.
After centuries of repression by the Russians, Prussians, Austrians, and Germans, the Polish immigrants hungered for democracy. .
By 1922,  Hamtramck  incorporated as a city, the Poles were the controlling influence,
Even as the sounds of heavy industry faded,  Hamtramck maintained its persona as an immigrant community.
these days Arabs, Bangladeshis, Bosnians, Serbians, find the city an attractive place to settle.

Orquesta La Inspiracion.

Led by Puerto Rican-born congero Ozzie Rivera and music director-pianist Bill Meyer, this 10-piece unit honors the traditions of merengue, cumbia and Afro-Caribbean jazz while forging new directions in Latin music.

Raised in Detroit, Rivera is a longtime cultural activist and social worker. He’s studied Afro-Latino music for more than 30 years. “Music with heavy drumming helps people get into a different, spiritual plane,” says Rivera. “If it’s not putting you in a trance, it’s not doing its job.” That sounds pretty inspirational.
Meyer is a key component of Detroit’s jazz community, an activist and leader of his own bands. His long list of associates includes luminaries such as George Burns, Smokey Robinson, Cab Calloway, Burt Bacharach, Nipsey Russell, Natalie Cole and Savion Glover. 

Inspiracion is a mighty river of Latin sounds with strong old- and new-school currents.
Singer Figueroa and trumpeter Bob Mojica each have more than 40 years’ experience in the salsa and jazz inferno.
Saxophonist Chris Kaercher is deeply funky, having spent time with the likes of the Temptations, James Brown, Lou Rawls, the Manhattans, and the Spinners.
Bassist Steve Backus is known for his R&B bass grooves with Detroit band Jocelyn B and the Detroit Street Players.
Singer Armando Vega has that youthful spirit.
 The experiences of percussionists Gregory “Greco” Freeman and Javier M. Barrios range from Detroit jazz and soul to salsa and reggae.
Songbirds Dulce Checkler and Consuela Lopez bridge the old and new, going deeply into African call-and-response vocals, as well as the latest salsa and soul hybrids.
