A new, and free, music festival featuring artists with Michigan ties is coming to downtown Grand Rapids. The first ever GRandJazzFest is set for Saturday, Aug. 18, in Rosa Parks Circle, from noon until 10 p.m.
Chair and Founder of GRandJazzFest Audrey Sundstrom joined us in the studio to tell of the creation of this music event, and note some of the performers on the slate.
