The 7th annual Heights Music Hop is Sept. 12, 13 & 14, 2019. Join us for this FREE festival in the Coventry Village, Cedar Fairmount and Cedar Lee business districts of Cleveland Heights!

Mac's Backs will host Eric Everett Jazz  from 6:30-7:30 p.m. and Rachel Shortt from 8:15-9:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 12th in Mac's balcony space.

From American Songbook classics such as Duke Ellington, Bill Evans, Miles Davis, Antonio Carlos Jobim to modern jazz/pop and R&B artists such as Steely Dan, Aretha Franklin & Bill Withers, Eric Everett Jazz performs traditional jazz standards, latin, and R&B with a contemporary approach. 

Rachel Shortt describes her style as “a little folk, a little funk and a little soul”. Her provocative lyrics approach poetry in their elegant simplicity and ability to stand alone. But with the overlay of Rachel’s instrumental artistry, her original work provides a bold new language for those who seek a sound with passion and purpose. 

Metered spots on the streets, city parking lots and city parking garages in the Coventry, Cedar Fairmount & Cedar Lee Business Districts will be FREE during each district’s respective night of the festival! NOTE: There is no parking at bagged meters.

The Heights Music Hop is a program of FutureHeights, the community-based nonprofit organization that publishes the Heights Observer newspaper. FutureHeights has been a leader in civic engagement and community building in the Heights for more than 16 years.

Our goal is to grow this annual event to publicize the Heights' rich cultural scene and further promote the Heights as an entertainment destination and a home for the arts.
