GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- What's better than one headliner? Three headliners.
That's what the founder says about this year's GRandJazzFest.
The lineup was announced Wednesday night at the B.O.B. The list includes headliners Paul Brown and Nate Harasim with special guest Deon Yates. Grand Rapids City Commissioner Walt Gutowski and the Bridge Street Band are also playing, as is the Grand Rapids Jazz Orchestra with Edye Evans Hyde.
"We bring out a wonderfully-diverse crowd, and people are together and having a great time," said GRandJazzFest founder Audrey Sundstrom. "It's such a diverse audience -- every corner of the community, every group in the community is represented as part of the audience. And most importantly, it's free."
Other performers on the schedule include:
- Sunday night headliner Steve Cole Music
- Mike Frost Project 2.0
- Grupo Ayé
- Brian Simpson and Jackiem Joyner
- Big Band Nouveau
- Bryan Lubeck
