The first annual East Brooklyn Jazz Festival,brought to us by ENY Restoration LDC, was a huge success this past weekend. The festival opened with Latin jazz band Mambo Jaamboand closed with world renowned bass player, Stanley Banks & Friends, with the Sir Charles Pulliam band and vocalist, Ras Chemash & Friends in between. The event took place on the lawn at Gateway Drive in East New York, which provided plenty of green grass for chairs/blankets, sun, and space for the festival!
Shoprite was the Presenting Sponsor for the event, with Fusion East Restaurant/Bar, Alpha Care and Vitamin Water, all on board as supporting sponsors.
