Sunny Isles Beach Jazz Fest (Oct. 15-17) Booogie by the Beach (Oct. 30-31)

By Bari Auerbach….

“Come on babe, why don’t we paint the town?…And all that jazz!”

Oct. 15-17, Sunny Isles Beach will be the terrific town hosting the city’s 3rd annual Jazz Fest headlined by Ed Calle – one of the most recorded saxophonists in jazz history, especially renowned for his extraordinary ability to play Bebop.

The community is also “jazzed” about more Jazz Fest guests including successful saxophonist and flautist Jesse Jones, Jr. joined by multitalented vocalist Yvonne Brown (sponsored by the Sunshine Jazz Organization); and the Afro- Cuban jazz band Oriente.

This year’s Jazz Fest, produced by the City of Sunny Isles Beach in partnership with the Sunny Isles Beach Tourism and Marketing Council benefits Miami Children’s Hospital; and Joshua’s Heart Foundation – assisting those who struggle daily to procure food for basic survival. Joshua’s Heart Foundation, was founded by a five-year-old boy named Joshua. The main focus of his vision is to “Stomp out Hunger” in indigent and underprivileged communities and among those who battle debilitating diseases that affect their ability to earn enough to feed themselves.
