The line-up for the Wine & Jazz Festival 2019: Gerald Albright, Sax Pack and Matt Marshak

Unlike his last visit several years ago, Gerald will be solo this time around, so we will experience a full 90-minute set of his major hits, as well as tracks from his latest album.

Tickets for our 14th Annual Wine and Jazz Festival are already being snapped up. Purchase here or call 941-639-3720.

The park will open at (approximately) 12.30pm; the first act will take the stage at 1pm. Enjoy beautiful, waterfront views and amazing sounds – making for a perfect afternoon in Punta Gorda.

14th Annual Wine & Jazz Festival will be held on February 23rd, 2019.
