Details for Jazz Festival Participants and Directors

For any questions please contact mrc@csueastbay.edu or call 510-885-3167.

Each participating band has a 1/2 hour warmup time followed by a 45-minute time slot at their performance site. That 45 minutes can be used any way the director wants, and is most helpfully worked out where your band plays for 20-25 minutes their planned set (usually 3 tunes). During that time, the adjudicators will be sitting in the audience area speaking their comments into a recorder. When the band's set is done, the remaining time is used for the interactive clinic with the adjudicators who will be demonstrating "playing with the band" the concepts they wish to convey.
