Daddio feeling the jive of Montreux Jazz Festival

Founded in 1967, the Montreux Jazz Festival has established itself as one of the biggest and best-loved music festivals in Europe. Each year musicians, bands and music fans from around the world descend on the beautiful mountain town of Montreux on the banks of Lake Geneva for the annual Jazz Festival. Only an hour train, situated at the foot of the Alps, Montreux is a truly great location for an event that in the past has attracted such music greats as Miles Davis, Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and Bob Dylan. The festival has multiple concerts every day and is 15 days long!

We celebrated this 4th of July with an Erika Badu concert that was truely amazing. Also caught a little Paul Simon a few days later. America, spreading the love for jazz and music around the world.
