A little jazz for your weekend

If you're in the Fox Valley, you'd be doing yourself a favor to stop by the Fox Jazz Fest this weekend. The lineup is very good:
12:00 pm Seton Catholic Middle School Jazz Band
12:30 pm Neenah High School Jazz Band
1:00 pm Greg Gatien
2:00 pm Reggie and Mardra Thomas
3:00 pm High School Improv Competition Winners
3:30 pm Howard Levy Trio
4:30 pm Geoff Keezer

9:00 pm After hours Jam Session featuring Noah Harmon Trio,
@ Holiday Inn Riverwalk

Sunday, September 5th

12:00 pm Kaukauna High School Jazz Strings
12:30 pm Ashwaubenon High School Jazz Band
1:00 pm John Schwerbel & Patrick Kelly
1:30 pm The Mohawk Avenue Jazz Band
2:30 pm Ethan Uslan
3:30 pm Dan Trudell
4:30 pm Janet Planet

Of course, I'd strongly recommend you be there for the 1 o'clock show on Sunday, but that may be personal bias. Also, tonight's after-hours show with the Noah Harmon Trio should be killer.

After the jump, video of some of the highlights.

Edit: I'd thought it was John Harmon playing, but will instead be his son Noah -- my understanding is that it's an extended jam session, and anyone can sit in.
