The festival, a signature fundraising event for KSBR-FM, will feature more than 40 jazz artists including David Benoit, Hiroshima, Greg Adams, and Evelyn Champagne King.

The annual bash is a 4-hour concert featuring talented contemporary jazz artists in a freewheeling jam session. This year’s lineup includes big stars that will be announced on stage along with famous favorites such as Brian Bromberg, Chieli Minucci, Dan Siegel, Richard Smith, Freddie Fox, Max Bennett, Blake Aaron, Freddie Washington, Steve Reid, and Dean Grech.

Each Bash is a once-in-a-lifetime concert for both the artists and the audience. The music will never happen in exactly the same way again. The roster from previous shows is a virtual “who’s who” of contemporary jazz. Check out the website for the list of past performers. Get your tickets early as this has sold out in the past.
