    Yelp Gets Schooled At UofL: "Red" Brothers Take Over Jazz Fest 2015
    In honor of the fact that brothers Derrick Gardner and Vincent Gardner will be the main act for this year's Jazz Fest, Yelp Gets Schooled At UofL will host a private pre-show reception in the theme of another jazz and blues loving pair of brothers. But instead of going "Blues," we'll go with our favorite color instead: red! At this event, guests will be treated to the private reception that will be catered with light bites from Varanese and include other activities. UofL jazz department faculty will be on hand to give an insider's look at the concert. And then at 8 p.m., we'll attend a performance by Derrick and Vincent Gardner in Comstock Hall. There are details (you must be 21+, you must RSVP by a certain time, etc.) so make sure to check the below-linked page to attend this event.
