Each year the Franklin Academy Jazz Band Performs A Free Concert @ HerbFest For The Community.

This video from a past performance shows why the FA Jazz Band has become a mainstay for HerbFest visitors and a source of pride for the community due to the outstanding talents of the Frankin Academy students.

Originally Graham Johnson played the trumpet, then later switching to the Tuba, to help the band get started.   Over time the GJCAE has been able to pay each year the FA Jazz Band for performing helping it grow and the community enjoy top notch kids doing a great job.
