SpringFest Music 2015
Check out this year’s exciting music lineup!!!
Veteran vocalist Jeanne Trevor has been a fixture on the St. Louis jazz scene since the early ’60s. The versatile Trevor doesn’t categorize herself as a jazz singer; she prefers to describe herself as a “modern American singer.” But Trevor (whose influences include Dinah Washington, Nancy Wilson, Billie Holiday, and Ella Fitzgerald) is, in fact, jazz-oriented, although her Love You Madly CD demonstrates that she has no problem detouring into cabaret, gospel, or Latin music. As far as recording goes, Trevor was a late bloomer — she had been performing live for almost 40 years when, in 1998, she finally recorded her debut album Love You Madly for Catalyst Productions.

Pop, Rock, Alternative, Grunge, Punk
Our own homegrown Feguson band, Jeske Park, is a talented group of young musicians in their early teens who formed back in 2011 as a result of a local school talent show project, taking their name from the place where they would often meet, hangout, and play music together. Lifelong friends and classmates, Jeske Park has since grown from the early days of weekly basement jam sessions to evolve into a band capable of a solid and entertaining stage performance. As a cover band with a variety of influences, from grunge rock to alternative to more modern pop and rock, Jeske Park is loaded with musical talent beyond their years that’s sure to impress and entertain audiences of all ages.
Soulard Blues Band
After 25 years and many incarnations, the Soulard Blues Band – arguably the hardest working band in town – still tears up the town one show at a time. It is not every band you run across that has a mission beyond just steady giggin’, but then again, as one of the longest-lasting acts around – and with nine straight wins in the “Best Blues Band” category in a popular local poll – the Soulard Blues Band is not just any band.
