We are excited to announce the Avalon Jazz Experience ~ Labor Day Weekend ~, renowned as the “best small town music festival in America”!

What began in 2009 as a single concert by the Monty Alexander Trio with the support and leadership of a small group of local jazz enthusiasts has now grown into an annual three-day extravaganza with world-class jazz musicians performing on the Avalon stage over the Labor Day weekend.

Why not make a whole weekend out of it with a Jazz weekend package!  Special pricing available!

New York City-based trumpeter Dominick Farinacci returns to Easton with his newest group, Triad, fresh from a residency at the iconic club Birdland to weave together the diverse musical worlds of jazz, blues, orchestral, and world music.

Featuring the music of Astor Piazzolla, Kurt Veil, John Mayer, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Jacques Brel and more, Triad bridges musical worlds with unique musical voices that generally don’t overlap: trumpet, accordion, vibraphone and marimba. Guest vocalist Shenel Johns joins Triad in the Festival’s opening night performance.

Marcus Roberts Modern Jazz Generation
Saturday, September 3, 2022
Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.
VIP Doors: 7:00 p.m.
Tickets: $100/50 

“Pianist Marcus Roberts is known for many things: a genius skill that makes him the logical successor to Thelonious Monk (with a lot of Fats Waller in his stride), an immense love of the blues and a soulful sense of tradition and invention.” (Philadelphia Inquirer)

For an introduction, watch Wynton Marsalis’ 60 minutes interview of Marcus Roberts
Founded by Roberts in 2013 with his trio members Jason Marsalis (drums) and Rodney Jordan (bass), the Modern Jazz Generation blends the whole history of the genre...from the classic sounds of New Orleans to the modern polyrhythms of the Marcus Roberts Trio.

Roberts will bring 12 players to the Avalon stage and introduce Easton to some phenomenal new talent while he unwinds his own dazzling skills. Based on the principle of mentoring that has played such a critical part of the evolution of jazz, the band incorporates into the roster of every performance a core group of talented younger musicians as part of its mission to pass on the grand legacy of jazz to new generations.

Jon Thomas and Firm Roots
featuring Imani Rousselle
Sunday, September 4, 2022
Doors: 3:30 p.m.; Show: 4 p.m.
VIP Doors: 3:00 p.m.
Tickets: $40/30

With his musical roots firmly planted in his gospel upbringing, jazz pianist Jon Thomas brings a soulful and meaningful intent to every note he plays.

As a recent graduate of The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and The Juilliard School, he was not only awarded the ASCAP Foundation Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Award but has hosted a bi-weekly session at Smalls Jazz club from 2015 to 2019. Last year he played the Avalon stage for the first time and wowed the audience with a spectacular performance also featuring vocalist Imani Rousselle.
