For the past six years, Philly has ended Jazz Appreciation Month by throwing an all-day jazz festival in Center City.
This year's celebration will take place Saturday, April 28.
Twenty bands will perform at five venues over six hours, all within walking distance of each other.
Musicians from Philadelphia, New York and the D.C. area. will perform for crowds at Time, Fergie's Pub, Franky Bradley's, Chris' Jazz Café and Milkboy.
"Every year I challenge myself to create a dream lineup of bands that would normally never be featured together on the same bill. The goal was certainly achieved this year," said Ernest Stuart, founder of the festival.
Tickets to attend the festival are $20 in advance online and $25 at the event. For the past three years, the event has sold out, so buying in advance is encouraged.
