Jazz’SAlive at Travis Park

Jazz Alive 070

Urban 15 dances through the crowd

Urban 15 was one of several groups entertaining attendees at the annual  Jazz’SAlive lawn party at Travis Park this weekend.  The weather was nice Saturday evening and we remembered to bring a blanket and folding chairs to sit on.  We staked out a spot near a sidewalk and enjoyed watching the people and a few dogs walk past. The event attracted a large and very diverse crowd.

In addition to Urban 15’s band and dancers, we enjoyed listening to the saxophone playing of Kyle Turner and the United States Army Medical Command Band.  The Army bandleader punctuated their sets with persuasive recruiting speeches aimed at attracting musicians to join the military. 

In addition to live music there were food, beverage and merchandise booths. I enjoyed a fresh hot puffy taco. Jazz 91.7 radio station from Trinity University was on hand and KENS gave away “Melrose Place” posters, pencils and other items. If you missed Jazz’SAlive this year be sure to look for it next September at Travis Park.
