This year’s concert kicks off our 10th year celebration and the 50th anniversary of music legend Ronnie Laws. Laws is scheduled to perform with along with a plethora of celebrity jazz artists which Laws has accompanied throughout the years. We will continue to explore new sounds, new fusions, and new mixtures of jazz-based music – the types of sounds that are produced when artists courageously step out of the bounds of the traditional jazz scene and explore the jazz sound to discover “something different”. In addition to jazz favorites, expect to encounter new jazz-based sounds.

Designed to honor jazz legends, this event will be an intimate, up-close-and-personal luncheon with festival headliners as they share their personal stories, their love for jazz, and the evolution of the art form. The Red Cat Jazz Legend Award, named after the Festival’s Presenting Sponsor(s) is presented to a live jazz legend at this event.
