The A2 Jazz Fest mission is to showcase and promote jazz by presenting live performances of original compositions and jazz standards by Michigan-based artists

Organized by Ann Arbor bassist, composer and band leader Dave Sharp and a small band of area musicians, (http://www.davesharp.com) the A2 JAZZ FEST grew out of the weekly jazz series at the Old Town Tavern in downtown Ann Arbor, that began in November of 2014. The festival will be open and free to the public and has permit approval from the city of Ann Arbor.
