Poncho Sanchez • Eric Marienthal • Tizer Quartet • Flo – Funky Latin Orchestra. Nothing like a magical afternoon to bring together a couple of thousand merrymakers who will head up the hill to the Woodminster Amphitheater to move and shake under a canopy of fragrant redwood trees. Come out and socialize, and share some homemade appetizers, and cut loose in the aisles with the upbeat tunes on September 20th.

Jazz is a splendid genre born of African and European roots and come to beautiful fruition amidst Southern black communities in the tumultuous times afflicting such communities in the early 20th century United States. Not just its sound, but its mere existence, speaks to powerful cultural roots oft overlooked or brushed aside by other genres that have risen to popularity since.

The Playboy Jazz Festival is an annual fest that seeks to honor this tradition while offering a stage with which new artists of the genre can be heard. It is a festival with a history going back over half a century and it remains popular to this day.
