The Northeast Florida Jazz Association (NEFJA) invites you to return to the Big Band era with the music of Count Basie, Sarah Vaughn, and Arthur Prysock performed by the fabulous Doug Carn Big Band featuring Carn as Count Basie and popular vocalists Mary Louise and Laurence Walden as Sarah Vaughn and Arthur Prysock.

All proceeds will go to the Jeep McCoy Scholarship Fund and will be used to provide scholarships to talented music students enrolled in a jazz studies program at a Florida university or college. Previous scholarship winners have gone on to perform with noted jazz stars including Wynton Marsalis, James Moody, Kenny Barron, and others.

The Northeast Florida Jazz Association is dedicated to presenting the best live jazz music at affordable prices and perpetuating jazz, America's indigenous art form by presenting scholarships to the next generation of jazz musicians.

Come listen to some great jazz and support a worthy cause at the same time. Admission for the concert and supper is $45 for NEFJA members; $50 for non-members. Concert only tickets are available for $20. Seating is limited, so call 386-445-1329 today for tickets. (The concert will be from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. and the dinner will follow.)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
