The M&T Jazz Fest is set for the first weekend of the summer in late June. 
Performers from three American cities rich in music history will take the 
stage at OCC. The headliners were announced yesterday.

The event starts Friday, June 23rd with the Sounds of Motown. The night 
will be headlined by the Funk Brothers from Detroit. They've played 
background music for countless Motown hits by greats like Stevie Wonder and 
the Temptations.

Saturday night, the music heads south for a "Salute to the Sounds of New 
Orleans." Dr. John and Lower 911 headline the evening. Dr. John ranks among 
Luis Armstrong and Fats Domino as distinctive New Orleans voices.

On Sunday, the music of Memphis takes over the stage. The Soul Survivors 
round out the night and the Festival. And along with the music each night, 
comes food from the respective regions from Ribs and Barbeque to Cajun 
Cooking. The food and music make for an event everyone's talking about.

This is the festival's 26th year.
