The Prescott Jazz Society presents JAZZ SPLASH – JUNETEENTH Festival “The American Jazz Timeline”
June 13 & 14, 2015 (Saturday & Sunday)
A two-day festival celebrating the Emancipation Proclamation through all-American jazz, blues and gospel from world-class musicians.

Juneteenth Jazz Splash features continuous live music, cabaret shows, artisan vendors, barbecue, dancing, and everything Arcosanti has to offer: hiking, swimming, tours, dining, overnight accommodations, gallery, gift shop and more. See this link for the schedule and other details.

Founded by jazz historian and performer Milton DeLove Cannon, Jr., Prescott Jazz Society incorporated in 1994 as a member-driven non-profit organization. PJS was developed as the professional entertainment component of the edu-tainment Cannon Academy of Performing Art, founded in 1993.  After more than 20 years of presenting the Prescott area with some of the greatest jazz musicians, Prescott Jazz Society continues to work to create the broadest appeal across language and ethnic barriers.
