Toledo's own Cakewalkin' Jass Band will bring their signature New Orleans-style music to Lakeside for this special Concert in the Park at 7 p.m. at the Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo.

The group formed in 1967 after only playing a few small gigs together. The following year, they performed their first show at Tony Packo's Cafe where they would continue to headline for 35 years.

Since then, the Cakewalkin' Jass Band has not only dominated the Toledo music scene but expanded to play shows across the U.S.

In the beginning, the four-member band was comprised of banjo, drums, piano and clarinet but has since grown to include cornet, trombone, tuba and string bass, with a total of eight members.

The band frequently performs at festivals, weddings and jazz clubs, including the Detroit Hot Jazz Society and the Charleston Jazz Club and was one of 15 bands to participate in the World Championship of Jazz at the Indianapolis Jazz Club.

In addition to their live performances, the Cakewalkin' Jass Band has released eight albums and developed a repertoire of more than 490 original songs.
