Thank you for coming out to this year’s Jazz & Roots Festival!

In it’s fourth year, the festival once again connected several thousand people through the joy of music, right in the heart of downtown Springfield. The festival strives to embrace and provide a platform for creative exploration, thoughtful conversation, and community engaging experiences– that lift up the city, bring diverse people together, and amplify the good work being done by people and organizations in the Springfield community.

After the encore, we shifted gears and went from the big stage to an intimate jazz club, with a a pop-up performance in the atrium of 1350 Main Street (the Mass Live building). Festival goers with an appetite for late night entertainment joined us for an outstanding jam session with members of the Community Grooves band, Mitch Chakour, and Miles Mosley.
