Jazz & Blues Festival Line-Up WEBSTER UNIVERSITY STAGE Noon 2 p.m. 4 p.m. 6 p.m. 8 p.m.

from page 1A Today, the 13th Annual Old Webster Jazz & Blues Festival promises nonstop jazz and blues from two stages. Live entertainment begins at noon and runs until 11 p.m. Available seating fills up quickly, so attendees may want to bring their own lawn chairs. Headlining this year’s music festival is David Dee and the Hot Tracks Band. Considered by many to be St. Louis’ reigning blues king, David Dee has earned the title of one of his original standards, “Workin Blues Man.” The moniker embodies the various roles of bandleader, song writer, guitarist, entertainer and singer cultivated through 40 plus years of travels. Dee has recorded and performed everywhere from Parisian Hotels to East St. Louis VFW halls to festivals in Amsterdam. Marquise Knox returns for a third performance at the festival. His high energy, engaging style has made him a favorite among festival attendees. The Marquise Knox Band performs on the Webster University Stage at 2 p.m. In addition to offering the sounds of some of the area’s most accomplished jazz and blues musicians, the event offers food and drink from 15 area restaurants. Street entertainers — face-painters, jugglers and balloon artists — perform throughout the day, and a special area
