Vail Jazz presents Vail Jazz at the Market. Taking place on Sundays throughout the summer from noon – 3 pm, delight yourself with jazz at the Solaris Terrace while enjoying the Vail Farmer’s Market. On July 31st, The Hennessy 6 will perform.

The group includes Cully Joyce (sax), Colin McAllister (guitar), Brad Bietry (keyboard), Jason Crowe (bass), and Devin Malloy (drums). With a unique sound that features original music by all the group’s members in intricate arrangements, their versatility and virtuosity are showcased in soulful ballads, driving swing, Latin, hard bop and more. The band’s various members have appeared alongside Dave Liebman, Maria Schneider, Ernie Watts, Jon Faddis, Wycliffe Gordon, Vince Gill and Amy Grant.
