Seaside Jazz Festival

February 22 thru 25, 2018
















2018 Performer Lineup:

 The Seaside Jazz Festival presents a performer lineup of the highest caliber.  The performers selected to play at the Festival represent some of the best musicians playing today, and while these performers often stay "true" to the standards, they also present original pieces, and in the true jazz tradition, add their own style to the music.  Because our festival is about music and having fun,  we also feature performers outside of the "Jazz" genre, this diversity makes for a truly entertaining event.

Here is the 2018 band lineup featuring some of the hottest names on the festival circuit.  For fans familiar with these artists, we are sure you'll agree this is a top flight bill.  If you would like more information about the bands, just click on their name, or logo, to visit a band's own site.

This lineup is subject to change, so check back for changes, or simply show up and enjoy the music.
