CHARLESTON, SC – The Charleston Music & Heritage Festival, better known as ChazzFest presented by Digital Lifestyle Outfitters, announced its lineup for 2007.

The second annual ChazzFest will be held September 22, 2007, and will feature a diverse schedule of musical genres and performers playing on four stages throughout the grounds of Family Circle Magazine Stadium on Daniel Island. Lowcountry artist and food will also be highlighted at the event.

Jazz icon, Branford Marsalis, and funk/R&B legends, Kool & the Gang, will headline this year’s festival. In addition, ChazzFest will feature: Galactic, JJ Grey & Mofro, Toots and the Maytals, Soul Rebels Brass Band, Son Volt, Seldom Scene, The Lee Boys and Dottie Peoples, Chairmen of the Board and The Embers. Rounding out the bill will be local acts Quiana Parler (of American Idol fame) & Friends, Uncle Mingo, Davis Coen, Ann Caldwell and the Magnolia Singers.

“Consistent with the philosophy we established last year, we’re bringing an eclectic mix of artists, while celebrating our roots” said ChazzFest promoter and partner Riddick Lynch. “Even though we set the bar high in our inaugural year, we feel this lineup is stronger in terms of depth and breadth. We’re encouraging everyone to come early and stay late.”
