JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2014 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Lorraine Klaasen at Rochester International Jazz Festival

I scrambled over to the Xerox Auditorium where I met my brother coming straight from his job at Xerox. As one of the sponsors he had a couple of extra tickets to Janelle Monae at Kodak Hall so I grabbed the tickets through his car window and we headed inside to hear a few songs by the South African Township singer, Lorraine Klaasen. Her band had drums, conga drums, six string bass and guitar and a great groove but we couldn't stick around.
