Dianne Reeves heads the 2nd Annual Suffolk Riverfront Jazz in Suffolk, VA on Friday, July 26 @7:30pm. With Four (4) Grammys, two movie credits and a whole new fanbase to her name,(the only singer to win the vocal category for three consecutive recordings in any singing category), what’s next for Diane Reeves? Of all the current top of jazz singers, only Reeves has the musicality and the personality to take a subtle, delicate song and make it sound as natural as a lullaby.

There will also be other jazz notables such as Jeff Lorber, Warren Hill, Cindy Bradley, Walter Beasley, Everette Harp, and James “Saxsmo” Gates to name a few. This year’s festival on July 26-28 promises to be one of the top 10 festivals, as last year’s Boney James and Brian Culbertson’s performances. A VIP Jazz Brunch performance will be added to the festival this year with one of Swiss-born favorite’s, Alex Bugnon!
