Long Branch Jazz Fest
Part of the Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Festival, Long Branch Jazz Fest marks the close of the Jazz and Blues Series, as well as the end of the summer season. It is one of three, full-day festivals held along the Jersey Shore to celebrate the art and history of this wonderful musical genre. The festival is produced annually by the non-profit organization The Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Foundation, and all proceeds from the summer concert series go to fund education, scholarships and outreach programs.
The Long Branch Jazz Fest features jazz and blues performers, food, crafts and games, making it a great family outing. The event includes regional and exotic food vendors, artists and craftspeople. Nine performers will grace the stage to deliver compelling songs and rhythmic tunes, including Bob Del Rosso and the Jimmy Vivino Band. Other acts include Al Chez and the Brothers of Funk, The Long Gone Daddies, Gary Wright, The Blind Tellers, Dorian Parreott and Rob Paparozzi.
The festival is being held at the Amphitheater Promenade on Ocean Boulevard, along the Boardwalk, from noon – 10 pm on Aug. 24, 2013. Fireworks will be on display from 9:30 pm - 9:45 pm.
