• South Bend Jazz Festival Hits Michiana Once Again!

    SOUTH BEND JAZZ FESTIVAL AUGUST 20, 2016
    CENTURY CENTER, DOWNTOWN SOUTH BEND

    The South Bend Jazz Festival is upon us again for their 5th Season. Danny Lerman, the brainchild behind the project, combines his passion and talents to bring the community just that much more to do in Michiana.

    At this year's festival you can party to world class Jazz, Soul and Latin music performers, savor craft brew from Crooked Ewe and enjoy some great food as well... all with friends and family making this a memorable event!
    So put on your dancin' shoes, kick back and enjoy the 5th Annual South Bend Jazz Festival, on the island at the Century Center.

  • The 2016 South Bend Jazz Festival will be held at the Century Center

    The objective is to develop a world class Jazz and Music festival right here in South Bend, Indiana, according to Danny Lerman, local businessman, promoter and musician. Lerman says the Festival began just outside the Morris Center, five years ago at Jon Hunt Plaza. As the venue has expanded Lerman made the decision to move it to a large facility. According to Lerman's plans, he certainly intends on keeping it in downtown South Bend since that is where it is rooted. This year's move means a larger venue, more room for entertainers and for visitors. "We are excited to move to our new venue, the beautiful Century Center, on the Island," Lerman said recently. "This is a huge move for us and another step up. This should be a very positive step for the Festival as well as for anyone attending. This is meant to be a fun event where you can meet your friends, and make new ones, while enjoying the breath taking view of the St. Joseph River, exciting music you haven't seen before, tantalizing food and brew!"

  • Artists like Joe McBride Should Keep the Festival Exciting and Happening Throughout the Entire Evening

    Visitors of this year's show will be entertained from 4pm until 11pm. From what the promoter has stated the energy of these particular musicians should "keep the party going and dazzle the jazz and music enthusiast."
