It's hard to resist the good music, good food and good fun at Jazz on the Grass. If you've never been, don't let another one pass you by! This year's jazz artists include Kirk Whalum, Lin Rountree, Randy Scott, Demetrius Nabors and other surprise guest.
In today's economic crunch, finding things to do that the family can enjoy can be hard to find, not to mention affordable. But depending on your preferences, the old saying "The best things in life are free" still has meaning. If you're a lover of good music, fun times and a community atmosphere, then Jazz on the Grass is one event where you and your family need to be.
This is an event created and hosted by Family Victory Fellowship. Pastor Larry Jordan presents Jazz on the Grass on one night every year. And it's free. That’s right—free. There is no cost to the general public, and all are welcome to come and enjoy a wonderful evening of jazz and fellowship—even the kids. Yes, the kids can come! This is an event for the whole family. There will be local businesses on the grounds, and food and drink will be available. Jazz on the Grass is fast becoming a yearly expectation by jazz lovers all over Metro Detroit.
Jazz on the Grass is an annual outdoor community gathering, providing thousands in the Metro Detroit area with an enjoyable evening of live jazz and more.

Friday, June 15, 2018, is an excellent day to have Jazz on the Grass, especially when there are phenomenal local jazz artists to entertain the crowd. People will start arriving around 4 p.m., even though the show starts at 6 p.m. This show will feature artists you might hear on your local radio stations. If you arrive early enough, you just may get a glimpse of them casually getting ready for showtime. This year's show will have Kirk Whalum, Lin Rountree, Randy Scott, and Demetrius Nabors performing also another surprise artist!.
The music is superb and the lineup is awesome! So come early and bring your lawn chair and another jazz lover!
