Amelia Island Jazz Festival

2009 Amelia Island Jazz Festival

The 2009 Les DeMerle Amelia Island Jazz Festival kicks off October 4 with a free Jazz concert featuring a 19 piece United States Navy Big Band. Bring a blanket to cozy-up at Amelia Park Town Square and enjoy a Big Band blast in the warm Amelia air. Never one to sit out a good party, the Historic Palace Saloon is hosting a Latin Jazz concert on October 8 at 7 p.m., where guests will dance to a sizzling salsa band. On Friday, October 9 and Saturday, October 10, the legendary David Sanborn and the famous Dynamic Les DeMerle Band will perform in the headline concert at the First Baptist Church. Attendees of the concert are invited to attend a Jazz Jam session following the performance, featuring a jazz trio at the Church’s Hall. The music festival concludes on Sunday with a Dixieland Jazz Brunch at the Beech Street Grill in downtown Fernandina.
