Featuring some of the top performers of traditional jazz and traditional jazz inspired music, the Seaside Jazz Festival, set for February 23 through 26 at five downtown Seaside locations, is a truly enjoyable experience. Spend the weekend, or just a day, and you will have a grand time enjoying the sounds of this “True American” art form.
There are five featured venues and all the venues are located in the downtown area of Seaside. All are within easy walking distance of one another, or there is a free shuttle service running between them.
The performers selected to play at the Festival represent some of the best musicians playing Traditional Jazz music today, and while these performers often stay "true" to the standards, they also present original pieces, and in the true jazz tradition, add their own style to the music. This makes for a truly entertaining event, which is certain to delight our audiences. See the complete 2017 lineup on the website.
Each band, or performer, plays multiple sets through out the Festival, moving between venues. These sets typically average at least an hour. It has not been unheard of, however, for the last set on Saturday night to go much longer (you just have to give the band the right motivation.)
Cost varies; call the event organization, the non-profiit Lighthouse Jazz Society, at (866) 345-6257 for more information.
