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. Founded by Ann Arbor bassist, composer and band leader Dave Sharp, and supported by a devoted group of volunteers, musicians, educators and sponsors, the A2 JAZZ FEST welcomes you to experience the fine art of jazz.
