Las Vegas 2014 Jazz Festival

Sax titans Euge Groove and Richard Elliot will spar during a raucous heavyweight jazz, soul and funk session.


The third edition of Las Vegas Jazz Festival taking place September 19-21 will be the largest gathering yet. Twenty big rollers – as in Grammy winners and nominees and No. 1 hit-makers - in contemporary jazz, R&B, soul and funk are booked to perform for thousands of exuberant fans coming in from all over the country. The Las Vegas Jazz Festival attracts an upscale urban adult audience that immerses themselves in a weekend of live music and lavish living provided by the first-class resort. 

Top-lining the opening night marquee is a pair of old school R&B funksters: Maze featuring Frankie Beverly and Cameo. Young saxophone turk +Eric Darius will start the party that lasts all weekend long.

By day, the Saturday lineup at the Las Vegas Jazz Festival puts the focus on jazz. Guitarist Tim Bowman opens followed by the first ladies of jazz, Jazz in Pink featuring Gail Johnson, Karen Briggs and special guest Jeanette Harris. Sax titans Euge Groove and Richard Elliot will spar during a raucous heavyweight jazz, soul and funk session. The evening portion is devoted to R and;B crooners with hitmen Eric Benet, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and Keith Sweat taking the stage to perform solo sets.

Sunday is a more balanced blend of instrumentalists and vocalists starting with a few fresh faces – saxophonists Elan Trotman and Jessy J and singer +Selina Albright – teaming for the opening segment. The powerhouse voice of Leela James will precede the debonair and sultry vocal styling of Will Downing. Contemporary jazz multi-instrumentalist Brian Culbertson uncorks his effervescent energy while rifling through his hit-filled catalogue of multihued melodies and jazz-funk grooves. Ledisi’s sophisticated sound in perfectly suited for the evening bill while Grammy-winner Anthony Hamilton’s gravel and grit voice will cap the weekend in full-throated R and B mode.
