A southwest Florida tradition continues as The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club again hosts the popular “SummerJazz on the Gulf” concert series for the 27th consecutive year.
The fun, free concert series combines a diverse selection of Jazz entertainers with gorgeous views of the Gulf, exquisite sunsets, refreshing breezes and a relaxing atmosphere. Each concert is held on the resort’s scenic Watkins Lawn overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
SummerJazz will take place one Saturday evening per month from June through September and each concert will last from 7 to 10 p.m. This year’s lineup includes the Legendary J.C.s on June 16; Late Night Brass, July 21; New Groove City featuring Gumbi Ortiz, Aug. 25; and Eight To The Bar on Sept. 22.
“This year we’re featuring two groups who have played SummerJazz previously, Late Night Brass and Gumbi Ortiz, now known as New Groove City featuring Gumbi Ortiz – plus two new groups that we think will put on great shows,” said Naples Beach Hotel food & beverage director Jim Anderson. “It promises to be an excellent concert series.”
