The Pine Grill Jazz Reunion

The Pine Grill Jazz Reunion is among the premiere summer music events in the Buffalo/Niagara region. Held the first two Sundays in August in Martin Luther King Jr. Park. The two free concerts celebrate diversity through tribute to its truest American form -- the legacy of jazz -- and the city's role in the evolution of the genre.

Today with a long list of national and local alumni, The Pine Grill Jazz Reunion is a much anticipated summer in Buffalo tradition. Each year, over the two weekends, the concerts draw together close to 10,000 Buffalonians past and present and new visitors to bring alive old memories and make new ones.
