On the breezy evening of October 13th the Fifth Annual SIB Jazz Fest Main Event took place in our beautiful Heritage Park. The talented artists performing this year offered a wide variety of music to concert goers. The FIU Faculty Jazz Band began the evening in smooth style.
The next act was Jazz great Ira Sullivan, who gave a performance that earned a standing ovation. Rose Max and Ramatis Brazilian Jazz were third in line to perform and provided a little Latin flavor for the evening with featured bassist Dorio Ferriera.
Last to take the stage was the headliner David Benoit on piano. He played a beautiful set for the audience of fans of all ages and stayed afterwards to sign autographs.
