Jazz-genre bands come from all over the country to perform at this live music festival. Town and Country Convention Center will be jamming out for five full days. You can head to Hotel Circle from Wednesday to Sunday, with ticket prices that vary day to day. A variety of Multi-day ticket price packages are also available, so you can take advantage of all the exciting entertainment.
There’s sure to be bands everyone will love – whether you prefer traditional jazz music or the funkier side of swing, boogie-woogie, ragtime or Dixieland. See San Diego’s own Sue Palmer with her Motel Swing Orchestra and vocalist Deejah Marie performing blues, swing and jump music. The festival will open with High Society plus the Dave Bennett Quartet to kick off the high-energy event.
San Diego’s Heliotrope Ragtime Orchestra will come out wearing vintage dancer costumes. Two renowned swing bands will bring crowds to their feet, while “JazzSea Jams” invites musically inclined guests to jam with the bands. From the festive New Orleans Street Music to the Rockabilly classics of Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis, the stage will be a showcase for style and talent.
Make the most of this charming event for a romantic getaway. Spend time with a special someone with dance demos by the Swing FX Dance Team and dance classes by Georgia and Hal Myers. Sunday starts off with Gospel music with the Night Blooming Jazzmen of Claremont.
