The Eric Essix Jazz Escape was created to be a relaxing getaway and jazz music experience. There are many festivals held around the world every year, but few offer attendees great jazz performances, luxury accommodations, a world class golf course and spa ALL on the grounds of a premiere resort such as the Renaissance at Ross Bridge. Jazz Escape attendees need only walk out the door of the hotel to enter the 5,500 sq. foot tent that covers the entire stage and seating area for 600 guests providing a comfortable listening environment in an intimate setting. The Jazz Escape is designed to be an outdoor jazz concert and lodging experience like no other in the region.
In addition to great music and accommodations, the Jazz Escape is very proud to be held in Birmingham, AL which boasts a variety of interesting and inspiring tourist attractions. Southern cuisine at its finest can be found in the city at restaurants owned by some of the nation’s best chefs. Birmingham also has plenty of great shopping featuring everything from large scale retail malls and outlet centers to quaint, local specialty shops and stores. Information for all of these options will be made available to every Jazz Escape attendee.
