Well, as they say, Hot Jazz Jubilee 2014 is in the can. Our second year proved to be as exciting as our Inaugural one. Many fabulous bands played to packed houses all day long (a problem that has been resolved) and our avid dancers entertained the crowds. The hotel was as gracious as they could be and the addition of a tent outside helped increase our capacity for this festival. The tent also helped our local youth bands raise well needed funds through the sale of Leatherby's donated ice cream. Mmmm.. hot weather and lots of ice cream. Our two food vendors were also very busy as the food they provided was not only very good, but also very abundant. Both vendors are very experienced in the Sacramento jazz scene and were a welcome addition to our festival.
You can't say enough good things about our regiment of volunteers. The help that is needed to produce this type of event is UN-imaginable. You can't even begin to count the numerous hours each of them put in. Such truly dedicated jazz fans make this all work ~~ THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.
So please check back here on October 1st for a look at next years list of invited bands. Some new names, some familiar names, and hopefully the bands you want to see.
