As April gives way to May this week, we can look forward to the return of this popular video meme. In any other week, that would have been enough, but we’re excited for a different reason: Allentown JazzFest!
We’re stoked to be an official media partner of this year’s festival, and you can be sure that we’ll be there quite a bit this week and next. In addition, there’s plenty more music where that came from!
Let that be your preface as we present the…
