Jazz Festival in the Gaslamp Quarter

In 2 weeks (Memorial Weekend), on May 26, you have an outstanding opportunity to listen to terrific smooth jazz in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter (map).

The 32nd Anniversary of the Harrahs' Rincon Smooth Jazz 98.1 Gaslamp Festival takes place from 2 - 10 PM, featuring some of the best known smooth jazz musicians around. In addition to the headliners, like Rick Braun (a fave of mine), Peabo Bryson, Richard Elliott, Mindi Abair, and Norman Brown, there will be live music at 30 different locations in the area.

Gates open at 1 PM and you must be 21 (and have a ticket) to attend.

Tickets are available and may be purchased on-line ($40 + fee for on-line, but I believe you can get them at other locations right now for slightly less money, such as Staples).

Sound like a cool thing to do? Check it out. Expect lots of crowds, challenging parking, and loud music, but a fun time. If you plan to have dinner, though, do so far away from the main venue. The music IS loud. Let's hope for terrific weather!
