2017 Old Webster Jazz & Blues Festival Musical Lineup

May 2017 – Webster’s biggest music event returns on Sept. 16 with an electrifying lineup of the region’s best local jazz, blues, funk, rock, and soul musicians.

“Our fans have been vocal about their favorite performers from previous years. We’re bringing a few back, showcasing some new acts, and giving an authentic sample of our region’s original musical artform. We’ll finish with one of our favorite party bands: The Funky Butt Brass Band,” said Brian Ward, musical director for the festival.

For the past 17 years, Old Webster Jazz & Blues Festival has attracted more than 12,000 fans annually. Music stages are located in the heart of downtown Webster Groves, surrounded by historic buildings and locally owned restaurants and shops. The setting creates a unique performance space: Passing trains provide a backdrop of percussive rhythm while the buildings give an acoustic boost.
