Please join us in a jazz night and open jam session at the 35th South Miami Rotary Art Festival’s Beer Garden on February 23th!
Let’s celebrate with live music and community after a day enjoying art.
Greg Byers will lead his band with his electric jazz cello for the Jam Session. The band will be joined by well-known trumpet player Fernando Ferrarone and saxophonist Jeffrey Zavac plus other visiting musicians who wish to jam with the noted artists. (Be sure to join us during the day to see the Zach Bartholomew Trio!). This jam is open to all musicians, instrumentalists and vocalists. Please bring your own instruments. You can enjoy creating music with fellow musicians or sit back and take it in.
There is no cover, and as always it’s dog and kid-friendly. We’ll have beer and wine and great weather.
