If your ideal night out includes a three course dinner and live jazz music from a few special jazz legends, you’ll have a blast at Jazz Legends Live! this September. The Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance (SAACA), who put together great community events such as the Tucson 23 Mexican Food Festival and the SAVOR Food and Wine Festival have once again worked their event magic to bring jazz legends and great food to the people of Tucson.
Start your night with a three course dinner featuring live music from the UA Studio Jazz Ensemble at The Lodge at Ventana Canyon. Then, stay put for an ear-opening night of jazz from legendary jazz musicians who have performed with musicians such as Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, and Tony Bennett. This year’s Jazz Legends Live! will feature Lewis Nash on drums, Bobby Floyd on piano, Niki Harris on vocals, Tom Kennedy on acoustic and electric bass, and Jon Faddis on trumpet. Now that’s a lineup! Learn more about the musicians here.
As if it could get any better than that, all proceeds from the 2017 Jazz Legends Live! event will will go to local schools to support their dwindling music and art programs. So, you can truly feel great about spending money on this spectacular night on the town.
Tickets, ranging from $65-250, can be purchased here.
