SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A musical legend will be headlining Jazz Fest at OCC this year.
Organizers announced that B.B. King will be taking the stage.
Local artist Nick Ziobro gave us a taste of his performance that will be coming up this summer, as the entire lineup was unveiled Tuesday.
While B.B. King may get a lot of the attention there are other big name acts.
Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and Raul Midon will be traveling to Central New York.
But there are many talented musicians with local ties who will be performing as well.
Frank Malfitano, Executive Producer of Syracuse Jazz Fest Productions, Inc. said, "We've got some Syracuse musicians, Mark Doyle, great guitarist, we've got Julia Goodwin and Nick Ziobro, they're amazing, they're really amazing. They're going to represent Syracuse well. We've got the best in the world coming in; we have artists from all over the world coming in, and the very best of our own musical community being represented."
Of course people are also really excited to bring the festival back to OCC.
Jazz Fest will be held on July 11 and 12 this year, and as usual admission is free.
