More than 24 contemporary jazz and R&B high rollers promise to make the Las Vegas Jazz Festival a winning bet. Tickets are now on sale for the 3-day music and lifestyle event to be held at the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa on September 27-29, 2013 showcasing Grammy-winning and nominated soul singers and chart-topping instrumentalists.

The opening night of the Las Vegas Jazz Festival boasts a funky Friday lineup headlined by 2013 BET Lifetime Achievement Award winner Charlie Wilson, a 6-time Grammy-nominated vocalist who won a Soul Train Icon Award in 2009. A soulful pairing comprised of saxophonist Eric Darius and platinum-selling R&B singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Lyfe Jennings will take the stage first.

Grammy-winning singer-songwriter India.Arie, veteran R&B crooner Jeffrey Osborne and saxman Euge Groove top the marquee on Saturday. Grammy-winning guitarist Norman Brown and sax powerhouse Richard Elliot join forces for a session filled with R&B grooves. Emerging sax player Dominic Amato will perform a mid-afternoon show following a trio segment featuring saxophonists Michael Lington and Jessy J with keyboardist Jonathan Fritzen. The day will begin with a hit-filled performance by saxophonist Paul Taylor, a Las Vegas native.

The closing program of the Las Vegas Jazz Festival presents two-time Grammy-nominated soul vocalist Kem followed by Grammy-winning soul singer Anthony Hamilton. Soul-jazz guitarist Jeff Golub unites with saxmen Warren Hill and Tom Braxton for what bodes to be a blues-singed set. Guitarist Nick Colionne brings Chicago-style fire and flamboyant fashion to his shows. Sax Pack Steve Cole, Jeff Kashiwa and Jackiem Joyner – always delivers a high-octane performance. The final day gets underway with Jazz in Pink, a trio of talented women consisting of keyboardist Gail Jhonson, violinist Karen Briggs and saxophonist Paula Atherton.

Tickets can be purchased for the entire Las Vegas Jazz Festival or as single-day events, but BTWconcerts.com’s Brad Laughlin, the producer and promoter of the festival, encourages guests to come for the weekend.

“Part of the magic of our jazz festivals is when guests come and totally immerse themselves in the music and lifestyle experience for the entire weekend. One of the reasons we produce our events at first-class resorts like the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa is to foster that feeling of community that takes place when concert goers spend the weekend enjoying the live music along with the plush accommodations and top-notch facilities. In addition to the extraordinary shows we go to great length to produce, our festivals are an opportunity for people to getaway, relax, socialize, network and form relationships. These aren’t just concerts; they are fun mini-vacations and our guests fly in from all over the country to join the party,” said Laughlin, whose company also produces the Arizona Jazz Festival and the San Diego Jazz Festival.

Starting at $65.00 for single-day ticket and $285.00 for a 3-day seat, tickets for the Las Vegas Jazz Festival are available online at www.lvjazzfestival.com and by phone at 602.244.8444.
