Event Description

The New Mexico Jazz Festival in partnership with The City of Albuquerque Cultural Services & Mayor Richard J. Berry; and Nob Hill Main Street are pleased to present Summerfest in Nob Hill, an all day to evening free event featuring 25 acts on 3 stages.

This year’s Nob Hill Summerfest event runs from 2pm-10:30pm and features 3 stages on Central (at Girard, at Washington, and the Cork & Tap at Montclaire), 25 acts, and 75 of the finest local musicians. Headlining the evening at 9:00pm, on the main stage at Girard and Central, is Maceo Parker, a legend whose name is synonymous with Funky Music.  A funk and jazz saxophonist, Parker is best known for his work with James Brown in the 60s, as well as George Clinton’s Parliament Funkadelic in the 70s. For the past sixteen years, he has been building a new funk empire, navigating between Brown’s 60’s soul and Clinton’s 70’s freaky funk while also exploring mellower jazz and the grooves of hip-hop.  His timeless sound has garnered him a new young fan base with his catch phrase being, “2% Jazz, 98% Funky Stuff,” and his 8 piece band with whom he performs tonight has been called “the tightest little funk orchestra on earth.”  Also performing throughout the day and evening will be Hillary Smith & Soul Kitchen, Alpha Cats, Certified Organic, Son Como Son, Le Chat Lunatique, Wagogo, Midnight Creepers, Cathryn McGill, Pleasure Pilots, Humoso, Jasper, Zenobia, Django Rhythm Meat Grinder, Cali Shaw, and more!

Immanuel Presbyterian will have free valet bicycle parking for SummerFest, so people can ride to the event and leave their bicycles in a safe place while they walk around.  We have a fenced lot at 111 Hermosa Street just south of Central and one block east of Carlisle, and there will be an attendant at all times.

Duke City Wheelmen Foundation will have a booth in the Art and Artisan section.  We have some really cool stuff for sale; proceeds go to support ghost bikes.  Stop by and say "HI"

Check out Low Ink performing at Andre's Saturday night 7 - 10.  My favorite new band in Abq.
