2015 Amelia Island Jazz Festival

Posted by Ellen Goulding Myers on Sep 17, 2015 in Happening On & Around Amelia Island

Who says that island life is boring????  Certainly not I!  With fall just around the corner, there is a lot going on here on this little Amelia Island!  Kicking off the season is the Amelia Island Jazz Festival.

To quote Les DeMerle:  "Our concerts explode with exciting, swinging jazz played with passion, expertise and soul by many of today’s leading jazz artists. Each year’s talent roster is the best line-up we can assemble. Come to the 2015 Amelia Island Jazz Festival and become part of an amazing jazz experience. Be prepared for extraordinary jazz music which includes our headliners and many other guest surprises."

As quoted from their web site:  The Festival presents world-class jazz in many styles, including swing, bebop, Dixieland, big band, Latin, and contemporary. During the week-long festival, held in October each year, music is performed by jazz greats as well as fresh, up-and-coming young talent. Performances are staged in several venues around Amelia Island including the OMNI Hotels & Resorts Amelia Island Plantation. The Amelia Island Jazz Festival helps preserve the American art form Jazz by increasing the exposure and awareness of the music genre to the general public.

The Les DeMerle Amelia Island Jazz Festival distributes proceeds toward a scholarship program to fund college education for aspiring jazz musicians and works to provide a rich, diverse jazz offering to the Amelia Island area.
