Please consider becoming a corporate sponsor for the 34th annual 2017 Pensacola JazzFest, planned for April 1 and 2 in beautiful Seville Square park in historic downtown Pensacola.
The two-day FREE Pensacola JazzFest will be held 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, April 1-2, in Seville Square, our beautiful park in historic downtown Pensacola. The venue location 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 picnic baskets, or purchase food from one of our quality food vendors.
JazzFest is a free, family-oriented festival that celebrates all types of jazz and attracts approximately 12,000 enthusiastic listeners over the weekend. The music will include 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 show their wares, enhancing the festival atmosphere and adding value for our attendees.
Headliners this year will feature West Coast super-trumpeter Wayne Bergeron, who will perform with the Gulf Coast Collegiate All-Star Big Band on Saturday and the Don Snowden Big Band on Sunday. Bergeron will also lead a clinic Friday evening in conjunction with a rehearsal of the collegiate big band at Pensacola State College. This event will be free to the public and student musicians. Other headliners are the exciting Orlando-based Latin group Fusion Beat, Nashville-based rising star jazz singer Annie Sellick and a straight-ahead, all-star combo featuring jazz greats Greg Abate on saxophone, Bobby Koeble on guitar, Mike Esneault on keyboard, Steve Gilmore on bass and Fred Domulot on drums.
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 costing approximately $40,000.
