GDJS Annual Jazz Picnic and Potluck


The Greater Detroit Jazz Society hosts an annual jazz picnic and pot luck for members and musicians. We invite all members, patrons, Corporate sponsors, musicians and vocalists to attend. Not only is this a great showplace for local talent and a fun day for members, it's a great place to network with leaders and other musicians in the area.

Held annually at the Rec’ Bowl in downtown Mt. Clemens, we have “kick off” bands to ensure that we have everything we need for jam sessions throughout the day. The Rec’ is a covered outdoor venue which includes a bandstand, sound system, barbecue area and dance floor. Each year we look forward to hosting this picnic which honors our members and the remarkable musicians we promote.

We ask that members bring a dish to pass – suggestion are salads, fruit plates, cheese plates, casseroles, hoo d’oeuvres or dessert (store bought is OK). We provide burgers and dogs, draft beer, soft drinks, water, coffee and setup. There will be a cash bar available for wine and liquor. Non-members are welcome to attend for $15 at the door. We do check your membership status that day as you enter.

Nancy Blake is our Picnic Chairperson, please call her at 586-610-9871 with any questions you may have.
