musical notes

Time to get your boogie on at the 34th Annual San Diego Jazz Festival. This musical festival will feature jazz, Swing, boogie woogie, rockabilly, gospel, and ragtime, with over 30 bands playing 7 venues over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Held at the Town & Country Resort and Convention Center, this year’s event will feature tributes to both Louis Armstrong and Irving Berlin, as well as New Orleans-style parades and a Battle of the Bands. Venues include large concert rooms, double dance floors to flaunt your style, as well as more intimate “listening” rooms.

For those of you wanting to be more participatory, there will be a Sunday morning hymn-along, dance classes, and a number of jam sessions.
