Europe’s greatest Soul, Funk & Jazz-Party

… Welcome to the MALLORCA SMOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL – the only smooth jazz festival in the European Mediterranean area. Actually, in Sa Coma, on the beautiful east coast of the Spanish island Mallorca.

In May, a music festival with unique live music awaits you in the exclusive ambience of the Protur Biomar Gran Hotel & Spa. The 5-star hotel is also the venue and is characterized by an elegant and modern equipment, a full-equipped spa area as well as landscaped gardens and swimming pools (indoor / outdoor). Located only 300 metres from the beach, right on the Punta de n’Amer natural park.

This musical (short) vacation* is all about enjoying the finer things in life. Good music. Good food. Good wine. Good entertainment. Good weather. Good prospects for recovery and a unique experience in the breathtaking scenery of the Mediterranean Sea.

On stage, we welcome some of the biggest and most successful international stars of the Contemporary and Smooth Jazz scene:

The live concerts take place on Friday and Saturday evening and on Sunday forenoon until afternoon.

Here you can order your exclusive Hotel Package:
2 nights (May 1-3, 2013) incl. half-board & 4 concerts: from 238,00 Euro per person in a double room
2 nights (May 2-4, 2014) incl. half-board & 6 concerts: from 289,00 Euro per person in a double room
from 3 nights (May 1-4, 2014) incl. half-board & 8 concerts: from 406,00 Euro per person in a double room

I look forward to a great time,

Christian Bössner

* Additional vacation days at the hotel can be booked optionally.


A Peter White Christmas featuring Mindi Abair and Rick Braun

Reserved: $55 Premium: $75 VIP Table Seating: $110

Over the years, Peter White has maintained a reputation as one of the most versatile and prolific acoustic guitarists on the contemporary jazz landscape. Armed with an unparalleled combination of lyricism and energy, he combines elements of jazz, pop and classical guitar to create a sound that is singular and at the same time accessible to a broad audience.

One of the most recognizable saxophonists in the US, Mindi Abair has sold a half million records as a solo artist, but you probably know her as the featured saxophonist on American Idol for the 2011 and 2012 seasons.

Braun has been playing trumpet since he was a kid. No news there for the legions of fans his richly melodic playing style has attracted since the release of his first album, Intimate Secrets in 1993. Less known is the fact that he’s been a singer, and a good one (backing Rod Stewart and Sade among others, with vocals as well as his stellar trumpet) for most of his life, as well.
