This year’s headline act brings together three internationally acclaimed musicians – Paul Brown and Nate Harasim with special guest Deon Yates – under the billing “The Producers.”

“What’s better than one headliner? Three headliners!” GRandJazzFest Founder Audrey Sundstrom said. “This trio brings nonstop soul-shaking, house-rocking guitar, keyboard and saxophone to the Rosa Parks Circle stage. We’re really excited about Paul Brown, Nate Harasim, Deon Yates and our entire lineup for the fourth annual GRandJazzFest.”
