Live Music Month 2013

Newark was a center for jazz innovation and talent. Newark is the birthplace and home of the great jazz singer Sarah Vaughan. Newark was home to Savoy Records, a jazz record label; had many live music venues like the Grand Hotel, Casa Blanca and the Cadillac Club; and home to jazz station WBGO. Paying homage to Newark’s musical past, has brought together venues, musicians and organizations to curate “Newark Live Music Month” for the month of October. We were surprised and excited to have nearly 35 live music performances in October alone. Visit Newark and be a part of it's musical culture!
