Farmland Jazz Band consists of excellent, well-seasoned musicians from the Fort Wayne area and has performed for thousands of people at various venues including parades, parties, bars, church picnics, festivals, weddings, funerals, and afternoons in the park. “FJB” got its start at the Three Rivers Festival and continues to provide entertainment for all.
