Welcome to the First Annual Valentine’s Singles Jazz Cruise! We have 3 days jam-packed with so many exciting things that you don’t find on your typical jazz cruises. The obvious is, first and foremost, we are catering to the “Singles” Jazz population! Jazz, by nature, can be soulful, funky, and also very romantic! For most singles attending Jazz events, they don’t mind the Soulful, Funky vibes, but aren’t very excited when it comes to the romantic sounds. Is it because they don’t enjoy romantic music? No, it’s because they are not there with a romantic partner to enjoy the music with. That being said, Stiletto Travel Biz is bringing you, what is likely to be, The Most Talked About Jazz Event in 2015!

The master of Romantic Jazz music himself, Kim Waters, is our Headliner! Anyone that has been following Kim throughout his music career knows that his music is all about Love! For those of you that aren’t familiar with Kim, you are in for a special treat.

The VrroomVIP: Smooth Jazz ESPRESSO (Dec) featuring Jeanette Harris

Time to relax and treat yourself to the Grand Finale of the 2nd annual 2014 VrroomVIP: NeoSoul & Smooth Jazz ESPRESSO series. This amazing year featured a wide variety of extremely talented Smooth Jazz & NeoSoul musicians from across the country. Not just a concert, come early and get a taste of the VrroomVIP Experience with catered light delights at our pre-show Mix & Mingle. Also experience some of the greatest local poetic talent to kickoff each featured performance.

Jeanette Harris is the scintillating saxtress of smooth jazz. This lady understands that energetic and captivating performances matched with uplifting and inspiring vibrations in the music are the solid platinum recipe for success. Fans already recognize her for her wonderful cover of Stevie Wonder’s “All I Do,” which hit Billboard’s smooth jazz singles chart from her previous album, Saxified. Classically trained in both sax and piano, a graduate of Boston’s famed Berklee College of Music, and the saxophonist for the late, great Teena Marie’s final year of touring, Jeanette has weathered the fiercest challenges to bring the world her own brand of soulful healing vibes. That baptism awaits in her fourth CD, Summer Rain, on which Jeanette had a hand in writing all of the selections except her lovely cover of the Luther Vandross classic “Here and Now.
