Quick Pics: 2011 Detroit Jazz Festival – Hart Plaza (Pt.1)

It’s been a few years since our last trip to the Detroit Jazz Festival and it’s still going strong in its 32nd year! Spanning several city blocks, the festival offers 5 stages, countless acts, street vendors and performers, and fun for adults and kids alike.  The best part – all of the entertainment is FREE!  On day one, we endured the sweltering heat and enjoyed several acts including Kimmie Horn, Rayse Biggs & Friends, and Bambuti Drum & Dance Group.  Day two brought the finicky midwest weather with cold, wet rain!  Before getting totally rained out, we sat huddled up under umbrellas to hear Rahsaan Patterson belt out notes from his early days wth Can’t We Wait a Minute to one of his new joints – 6 AM.  He was definitely worth all the rain drops…We look forward to seeing what next year’s Detroit Jazz Festival has to offer.  Check pt 1 of the pics  and video of Rahsaan Patterson after the jump
