We are taking this year off and plan to be back in some form or fashion next year.
Hello everyone, after a lot of effort and heart felt thought on this, based on the sponsorship minimum it takes to produce the festival, sadly I have to let everyone know we are canceling the Saturday, July 30th 2016 date for what would have been the 14th annual Tacoma Jazz & Blues Festival.
I want you all to know, particularly the committee for these last two years and all our friends and sponsors who helped us put it on, on South Tacoma Way, your help and support is appreciated more than you know, more than I can say. We can all be proud of a well done quality event in 2014 and 2015, nothing to feel bad about.
Thanks again to all of you and the committee members the last two years and to the business district and the City of Tacoma.
At this point I just want to take some time off and re-evaluate if I want to do the festival again, or some other location or format, or just go back to producing a few special guest artist concerts each year instead with my band.
On a positive note, live music, live jazz and blues is still alive all around Tacoma including great clubs like Stonegate, Dawsons, and more so please get out and enjoy music there and watch for special concerts I will be producing all around the area too. Thank you all for your support these last two years in particular.
