Chaka Khan to headline Waterfront Stage Series at Halifax Jazz Festival

July 12th, we still have some surprises to go, but one we don’t have to wait for, and that is the Headlining act for the TD Halifax Jazz Festival.

Chaka Khan, the Queen of FUNK will be gracing the stage and will be performing what will be nothing short of a historical moment for the books at the Jazz Fest.  With 10 Grammies under her belt, Chaka Khan will be putting up a full night of amazing talented music!

July 14th, Juno Nominee Blues artist Matt Andersen & the Mellotones will be headlining the Waterfront Stage with openers Whitehorse. If you have not seen Matt Andersen play live, you are missing out on some serious talent!
