The East Bay Traditional Jazz Society will present the 14th Annual School Jazz Festival on Saturday, May 31, 2014, at the NewPark Mall in Newark, California. This years’ festival will feature three Junior High School Jazz Bands, three Senior High School Jazz Bands and playing at the breaks will be the Jazzinator Youth Dixieland Band.  The festival will be located on the first floor of the Mall adjacent to the Sears inside entrance. Each School Jazz band is extra-curricular, rehearsing outside of the regular school day…before or after school!  A commitment to Jazz is necessary as these dedicated student/musicians and instructors donate their time/talents to this American idiom.  We will pass-the-hat to help support each individual program continue its’ quest to keep “Jazz Alive”! Due to an evening commitment, we are starting this years festival with the John F. Kennedy Titan Jazz Band at 10:15am.  This energetic group will start off the day with some real wake-up music.   Long time director, Mr Bob Sterling will lead his band with distinction.  Filling in the breaks between each school band will be the EBTJS House Band…performed by the Jazzinators.  You’ll find many of the Jazzinators performing with their school bands.  The Jazzinators invite students from the performing bands to “sit-in” with them during their break time performance. Beginning at approximately 11:00am will be the spirited group from Horner Junior High.The director of this fine band is Mr. Paul Lorigan. Following the Horner Band will be the euphonic sounds of the Irvington High Viking Jazz Band(~11:55am), directed by…
