Shoreline Jazz

Music enthusiasts, or anyone who enjoys having a good time, may be happy to know that a jazz festival will return to Heritage Landing this summer. While the inaugural event in 2012 was the one-day Lakeshore Jazz Festival, this year’s festival features a new name – Alexander Zonjic’s Shoreline Jazz Festival — and an expanded schedule. The festival will be a two-day event this year, instead of the one-day event in 2012.

“I prefer to call the first one the pilot (festival),” said Alexander Zonjic, renowned flutist and co-organizer of the festival.

With a passion for jazz music and the Muskegon area, Hawkins Lang, the original organizer of the jazz festival in Muskegon, had an idea to create a music festival to celebrate the anniversary of his restaurant, Hawk’s Feathers and Finns. But what Lang didn’t expect while organizing the festival two years ago was the strong relationship he would begin to develop with Zonjic.

When the original headliner artist for the “pilot” jazz festival fell through, Lang came across Zonjic’s name, listened to his music and called Zonjic. Lang was surprised that Zonjic answered the phone. “I thought it was going to be his assistant (on the phone),” Lang said. From there, the two “just kind of hit it off.” Over time, Lang and Zonjic said they believe the festival will greatly benefit the area economically.

Zonjic, who has been both performing and working in the music festival business for more than 20 years, is excited about the Muskegon area. When he originally visited Muskegon, he said he knew Heritage Landing would be a wonderful place for a jazz festival. “My instincts kicked in and I thought ‘this would be so cool,’” Zonjic said. Zonjic said the idea of the festival is to have a large, cultural and diverse event in Muskegon.

Because the event is two days, Zonjic is hoping that jazz enthusiasts from Chicago and Detroit will visit the area. The music festival is scheduled to take place on Saturday, Aug. 23 and Sunday, Aug. 24. Tickets are expected to be available for purchase soon for the price of $25 per day.

The two-day jazz festival is set to have a total of 10 acts.

Saturday, August 23, 2014 – 1:00 pm

1pm – Lin Rountree, 2:30pm – Urban Jazz Coalition, 4pm – Tim Bowman, 5:45pm – Nick Colionne, Brian Simpson & vocalist Maysa, 7:30pm – Boney James.

Sunday, August 24, 2014 – 1:00 pm

1pm – Phil Denny & Oli Silk, 2:30pm – Michael Manson, 4pm – Jeff Lorber Fusion with Eric Marienthal & Jimmy Haslip , 5:45pm – Vocalists Lalah Hathaway & Ruben Studdard, 7:30pm – Alexander Zonjic with special guest Kenny G.

Smooth Jazz New York is pleased to announce a star-studded line up for the All New Smooth Cruise series , now in its 17th year. The 2014 season marks a change to a new boat, The Hornblower Infinity, a luxurious 210-foot luxury yacht.

The cruises set sail Thursday evenings, June 12 through August 28. The summer’s roster includes 11 nights featuring 19 of the world’s greatest contemporary jazz acts in a superb, intimate setting with shows at 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. The Smooth Cruises depart from Pier 40, located at Houston Street at the West Side Highway and cruise down the Hudson, not only offering exceptional music but breathtaking views of the Statue of Liberty and the New York City skyline.

“We’re very excited about our new cruise night and new boat. The Hornblower Infinity is a much larger ship than past years, offering our guests improved sightlines to view an amazing array of acts. It’s a fresh twist to our annual tradition of presenting the world’s best contemporary jazz out on scenic Hudson harbor,” notes Bill Zafiros, co-founder of Smooth Jazz New York.

The 2014 Smooth Cruise Schedule:
June 12: Jazz Attack feat. Peter White, Euge Groove, & Rick Braun
June 26: Patti Austin and Marion Meadows
July 3: Pieces of a Dream
July 10: Najee

Recently remodeled with a bold design, the Hornblower Infinity matches the uniqueness of New York — and the Smooth Cruises. The open bow, covered sky deck, and over-sized windows provide endless opportunities to enjoy the countless sites in NY Harbor as guests kick back with the best jazz artists in the business. Smooth Cruise attendees will enjoy the world’s finest contemporary jazz on climate controlled interior decks with multiple dance floors, and can take in the sights outdoors on spacious exterior sundecks.

The Smooth Cruises offer food and beverage service at an additional charge. A buffet dinner may be purchased for an additional $25, cash bar. Limited Deluxe Packages are available featuring a separate boarding line, a premium buffet on a private dining deck, and a premium open bar.
