The advertisement for Jazzaffair was inadvertently omitted from the February 2017 issue of The Syncopated Times. I offer my sincere apologies for the omission.
From Festival Roundup in the February 2017 issue of The Syncopated Times:
JAZZAFFAIR 2017. (Three Rivers, Calif.) – April 7-9.
Inspired by its longtime hosts—The High Sierra Jazz Band—the Jazzaffair takes place annually in the Central California town of Three Rivers, nestled in the Kaweah River canyon just above Lake Kaweah, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
