Merrickville’s Jazz Fest (MJF) will present its seventh season from Thursday, October 12 through Sunday, October 15, 2017. Performances take place in a variety of large and small venues in Merrickville’s downtown area including local pubs, restaurants, churches, the Baldachin Ballroom and other locations. Although our operating budget is much smaller than those of larger, well-established festivals, we are proud to offer the most interesting programming possible and count on the support and collaboration of our generous sponsors, faithful audiences and fabulous artists as well as our wonderful team of volunteers to make it work.
If you are interested in performing at MJF 2017, please complete the online Application Form below. The application forms and support material are carefully reviewed by a Selection Committee (which includes some new members each year) and artists are chosen based on a variety of criteria with an aim to present the highest quality and most interesting balance of programming to the MJF audience.
• With some exceptions, artists are responsible for providing their own PA systems, amplifiers and related equipment, instruments, music and microphone stands and related supplies and materials for performances. After six years of presenting the festival, this has proven to be the most successful and manageable arrangement.
• ALL FIELDS on the Application Form must be completed in order to be considered by the selection committee. TWO AUDIO SAMPLES are required in MP3 FORMAT ONLY. These may be forwarded via email or supplied via a Dropbox link.
• Online application forms must be received by noon on May 24, 2017. We will contact successful applicants only around the end of July.
• If you have any questions about submission requirements or how the selection process works or for any further information, please contact:
Susan Piercey: Director
Ralph Hopper: Artistic Director
