Philadelphia Music Walk of Fame to induct jazz artists

The Philadelphia Music Walk of Fame is going all jazz for the first time in its 30-year history!

The 2016 inductees include Joey DeFrancesco, Benny Golson, Christian McBride, Jaco Pastorius, and WRTI air personality Bob Perkins.

A ceremony is scheduled for October 19 at 12 p.m. in front of the Kimmel Center along the Avenue of the Arts.

That’s not all that’s set for celebrations. The Philadelphia Music Alliance Induction and “Making the Stars Shine” welcome event launch a two-day live music celebration in the city and suburbs, beginning that evening with a jazz concert at University of the Arts.
