DeeAnn performs at the Lewiston Jazz Festival

By Garaud MacTaggart – August 31, 2015

Based on the sheer number of folks who attended both days of this year’s Lewiston Jazz Festival, held Friday and Saturday, and the multitude of events available for the crowds to revel in, it appears all the hard work that the staff and their associates have put into this project was rewarded handsomely. The Rising Star Stage was the spot where up and coming talent got a chance to shine. This is where the Eastman Student Band rocked it, young tenor player Elliot Scozzaro proved to be a name worth looking out for, DeAnn DiMeo Tompkins displayed an impressively varied repertoire to go along with an impressive voice, and John Lehning’s quartet made a solid case for themselves.
