About our festival of authentic Jazz…

The 2013 Jazz By Night Celebration marks the 11th ANNIVERSARY of the Media Jazz By Night Celebration.  We are sorry to report that Monnette Sudler will not be performing at the 2013 Jazz By Night due to serious health issues. We will keep her in our thoughts
and prayers. We are sincerely hoping that she will be able to perform at our 2014 event.

We have a full evening of music, so make a reservation now at your favorite Media restaurant! In those venues listed as "Reservations Requested," the music will take place during dinner hours. At all other venues, make reservations for dinner "Before the Show."

WRTI 90.1 FM, Philly’s premier Jazz radio station, is our co-sponsor.

"It reminds me of New Orleans or festivals in Europe... Media does agreat job to get the music out there and educate the people. It's great to see the young people out... carrying on the music." - World-renowned Jazz saxophonist Odean Pope
