Join us for an exciting evening on Thursday, May 25 when ground breaking jazz group Straight Ahead performs on “Jazz on the Streets of Old Detroit” at the Detroit Historical Museum. This event continues the Jazz on the Streets of Old Detroit, a quarterly music series hosted by the Black Historic Sites Committee.

Out of Detroit’s lively jazz scene, which has produced some of the best musicians in the world, comes jazz group Straight Ahead. A group of strong, inventive instrumentalists and vocalists, they have shown themselves to be powerful and imaginative composers and arrangers. Widely recognized for their eclectic and soulful approach to creating music, the Straight Ahead sound ranges comfortably from mainstream jazz, contemporary jazz, latin and jazzy hip-hop. Their live performances are a dynamic celebration of power and joy with a wide range of musical textures, moods and tempos. Straight Ahead has been consistently recognized for its creativity, musicianship and dedication to making great music. In 2016, the band received an award for Best Jazz Band from the Detroit Musicians Entertainment Assoc. Straight Ahead was inducted into the Detroit Music Awards Hall of Fame in 2009.

We hope you will help the Black Historic Sites Committee continue Detroit’s jazz legacy by attending this celebration. Light refreshments are included in the ticket price.
