CLEARWATER - The baby-boom generation used to say, "Don't trust anyone over 30."
This year they will be enjoying the 30th anniversary of the Clearwater Jazz Holiday, an event that has continually earned the public's trust for providing both star-studded and up-and-coming performances each fall at a price that can't be beat.
The festival will kick-off tonight at Coachman Park with headliner and Grammy Award-winning vocalist Al Jarreau performing at 8:30pm. Friday night will be highlighted by another Grammy winner, trumpeter Chris Botti, who is making his second Jazz Holiday appearance.
Saxophonist Boney James, a two-time Grammy nominee, will be featured on Saturday night, and the Grammy-winning New Orleans R&B group The Neville Brothers will close the festival on Sunday.
Admission to the four-day event is free of charge. Food and beverage vendors will be on-site.
A wheelchair-accessible handicapped viewing area will be setup along the sidewalk just west of Coachman Park's pond. Handicapped parking will be available on a first-come first-served basis in the Harborview Center parking lot adjacent to the park.
