FREE Comerica Java & Jazz Concert Series at Detroit Main Library continues on April 16th with The B. Williams Experiment

Free concert series celebrates its 13th season, continues with local musicians

Comerica Bank has partnered with the Detroit Public Library to present the FREE Comerica Java & Jazz: A Coffee House Series for the 13th consecutive year. The concert series brings world-renowned jazz musicians to Detroit for music fans to enjoy free of charge.

“Comerica is proud to present the Java & Jazz series, which provides an arts and culture experience for people of all ages, backgrounds and budgets,” said Patricia McCann, vice president, national civic affairs manager, Comerica Bank. “Detroit has a great history of jazz music dating back to the 1950s, and the city continues to be a driving force in the genre today.”

The FREE concerts will be held on the third Tuesday of every month from March through July at the Detroit Public Library, Friends Auditorium located at 5201 Woodward Ave. Detroit, MI 48202.

The series continues Tuesday, April 16th with Detroit's own The B. WIlliams Experiment.

Jazz Appreciation Month is April and what better way to celebrate it than to present this talented musician. On the music scene since he was 12 years-old, B. Williams’ career has been an amazing musical journey. A direct protégé of Grammy and Billboard super producer Michael J. Powell, B. Williams is a powerhouse of musical knowledge from producing to arranging and everything in between. Known as one of the premiere drummers on Detroit’s live music scene, B.

Williams is considered a “go-to” music guy because of his ability to play numerous instruments and his versatile repertoire. But don’t believe us; experience the B. Williams Experiment for yourself as we welcome this great talent to the Comerica Java & Jazz concert stage.
