WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) – One of Wausau's biggest names in Jazz is hosting this year's River Valley Jazz Festival tonight.
Sid Kyler's Dixieland Jazz Band is the headliner this year for the two day event at Bull Falls Brewery. Kyler says it's won't just be Dixieland on the schedule though. “We've got 13 bands, and 60-something people coming out to play.” Bands will be playing both inside the Bull Falls Tap Room and outside in the Biergarten.
It's free to get in, but they are taking donations at the door to help raise money for their annual Jazz Musician scholarship. Last year's recipient is headed to UW-Green Bay as a saxophone major. Food and beverages will be sold on site by the Brewery and Hudson's Grill.
The event starts tonight at 6 pm and tomorrow at 11 am.
