The Eastside Jazzfest was organized by four veteran Milwaukee musicians who saw a definite need for Milwaukee’s jazz scene to be recognized apart from other music festivals in the region. Neil Davis, Steve Peplin Jamie Breiwick and Kevin Hayden organized the first festival to showcase the unique sound and talent of Milwaukee’s jazz scene – particularly that of the city’s vibrant Eastside. Seven groups took the stage to display what veteran and emerging jazz talent Milwaukee has to offer. The event was a huge success, so much that its organizers decided to continue the EASTSIDE JAZZFEST on a bi-annual basis.
