Tickets are now available for the fourth annual Bob James Jazz Festival. The Bob James Jazz Festival will be held Friday and Saturday evenings, May 16-17. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. the first night at Eckilson-Mabee Theatre on the Missouri Valley College campus. Saturday, the concert kicks off at 6 p.m. at Bueker Middle School’s Harold L. Lickey Auditorium, and doors will open at 5:30 p.m.

Tickets for each night are sold individually: $20 for the Friday night concert and $25 for Saturday.

The first night performance lineup includes area favorite Sedville Jazz Company, followed by Metropolitan Jazz Workshop. Saturday night, the concert begins with the “All-Stars” of the Bob James Jazz Festival Clinic. Music students of all ages participate in the Clinic and have the opportunity to open the Saturday night Bob James Jazz Festival.

Salty Dawg’s COLD SWEAT then takes the stage to add an R&B feel to the jazz concert. Gary Coble, a.k.a. Salty Dawg, is a Marshall-native who now leads the Kansas City-area music group COLD SWEAT, who provide “amazing, unique arraignments accentuated by Exceptional Slide Guitar, Soulful Sax and a Rhythm Section to die for,” according to saltydawgscoldsweat.com.

Headlining the 2014 Bob James Jazz Festival are the Sons of Brasil, a Latin jazz ensemble assembled by trumpeter Stan Kessler. At last a festival finale appearance by Marshall-native and jazz legend Bob James, performing a few select pieces from his repertoire.
