Get tickets now! Jazz Pensacola's Foo Foo Festival Event
Jazz Pensacola and the 2018 Foo Foo Festival present a stellar evening with Annie Sellick & Chris Walters' Big Time Band at Phineas Phogg's in Seville Quarter.
The Super Jazz Gumbo is 6:30 to 9 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12.
Critics call Nashville’s Annie Sellick an exceptional “original.” As a unique, musical personality, Sellick, who has performed around the globe, concentrates on jazz standards known and lesser known, finding the gold in each. Sellick is very much a jazz singer who focuses on the music, but she also is a storyteller, and her rendition of emotionally complex songs is masterful, says critic Roger Crane of the LA Jazz Scene.
Joining Sellick on stage is Chris Walters — a New Orleans-born pianist/singer/composer. Today, Walters is an independent artist who resides in Nashville. Walters tours as music director/pianist for Sony Music Masterworks Recording Artist JD Souther, opening each show with a set of his own original music. He also tours as keyboardist with Little Flock artist Peter Mayer and with the Jeff Coffin Mu’tet. Walters has performed with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and recorded the soundtrack for a documentary film scored by Bela Fleck.
All tickets are $25. Cash, credit cards and checks are accepted. Purchase tickets at the door, at Schmidt's Music, 105 N. Palafox St., or by calling Jazz Pensacola at (850) 433-8382.
Enjoy some of the area's best professional musicians and vocalists at our next Jazz Jam, 6:30 to 9 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5, at The Vineyard Restaurant, 1010 N. 12th Ave., Pensacola. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Note: Jazz Jams will now be held in the main restaurant downstairs -- not upstairs.
Featuring the House Band, Jazz Jam is strictly for fun, an opportunity to play jazz with other musicians. (Lineup subject to change.)
Admission is free for participating musicians, including high school and college students with student IDs. Each participating student also receives one free admission ticket for one guest. Drummers, please bring your own sticks/brushes.
Admission is $10 for Jazz Pensacola members and guests, $12 for non-members, free for students with ID and military in uniform. Become a Jazz Pensacola member at the event, and admission is free. Dinner and drinks available.
The two-day, FREE, Pensacola JazzFest will be held on an early-April Saturday and Sunday at beautiful Seville Square in historic downtown Pensacola. The venue features a sprawling live-oak canopy and a picturesque central gazebo used as the Main Stage. Seating is provided, though many of our attendees bring lawn chairs. And many purchase food from one of our quality food vendors.
JazzFest is a family-oriented festival that celebrates all types of jazz and attracts approximately 15,000 enthusiastic listeners over the weekend. The music includes a variety of jazz styles, presented by prominent national, regional and local artists, as well as area college and high school jazz bands. We also feature a “Kids Jam” with harmonicas and kazoos each afternoon for the children. In addition, an area is reserved for arts and crafts exhibitors to sell their wares, enhancing the festival atmosphere and adding value for our attendees.
Jazz Pensacola has been the sole presenter of Pensacola JazzFest since 1999, following WUWF-FM’s tenure as event presenter. The event is presented as a gift to the community from members and sponsors, and funds are raised in various ways throughout the year to finance this annual event.
