Behind the Scenes at Berks Jazz Fest
Some of the best jazz musicians in the world are about to descend on Reading, Pennsylvania from Friday, March 25 through Sunday, April 3. You'll be there, too, with WRTI.
Throughout the Berks Jazz Fest, tune in during our evening jazz shows as bassist Gerald Veasley phones in to Bob Perkins and Maureen Malloy to update us about the festival's bands and venues.
We'll find out who is on the scene, and who is coming up. This is a fun way to experience the festival without having to travel. But if you're planning on attending, Gerald will let you know what is in store for future dates.
WRTI's Jeff Duperon will be up in Reading to host "WRTI Night at the Berks Fest" on Saturday, April 2nd, featuring the Vista All Stars. This group of world-renowned players includes Wycliffe Gordon, Houston Person, and other star musicians.
