“This all started when I came across Heritage Landing in Muskegon. I was struck with the beauty of the setting, the stage and the grounds. I knew this was the ideal location for a celebration of contemporary jazz, soul and funk, offering the opportunity for fans to see their favorite performers, at one time, in one beautiful place, with the Lake Michigan sunsets as a backdrop,” said Zonjic.
