This year, the Allentown JazzFest debuts in the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania. The festival will run from April 28th through May 3rd. The main performances will take place in Miller Symphony Hall, the home of the Allentown Symphony. Allentown is approximately one hour north of Philadelphia and one hour west of NYC.
In the festival’s inaugural year, Project/Two signed Jojo Mayer and Nerve to headline the festival with two performances on Saturday May 2nd, 2015. JoJo will give a drum clinic in the afternoon and a concert with Nerve that evening at Miller Symphony Hall.

JoJo Mayer was voted by the readers of Modern Drummer as one of the 50 greatest drummers in history.
