   For the third year in a row, the GRUGELFEST will bring a full weekend of hot jazz to downtown Toledo.  Five traditional New Orleans Jazz Bands, plus World-Class jazz piano players, will be featured on 2 stages over four sessions: Friday night, Saturday afternoon, Saturday night, and Sunday.  Named for the late Ralph Grugel, leader of Cleveland’s Eagle Jazz Band, GRUGELFEST has replaced the annual Fall Dixieland Festival produced for more than 20 years by the EARLYJAS Club of Northeast Ohio.  A Dixieland worship service will also be held on Sunday morning at nearby Bethel Lutheran Church.
