Jazz and Oysters – August 14

Zona Calda
Zona Calda (Italian for “Hot Spot”) is known for entertaining audiences of all ages with swinging grooves and fresh takes on classic songs. Performing “Boho Jazz”, a term coined by the group to describe their eclectic repertoire, they cover tunes from jazz’s golden age, classic bossa novas, Motown and Soul hits and current favorites from artists like Norah Jones and Diana Krall.

JAZZ AND OYSTERS celebrates its 26th year. Each August, the Festival site is transformed into a jazz club, complete with oysters, desserts, beverages, sausages and an array of other tasty tidbits.  And then come the jazz fans and the music.  Over the years, Water Music Festival has hosted some of the best musicians in the Pacific Northwest, and the music lasts all day.

Jazz and Oysters is a major fundraiser for Water Music Festival in October, the peninsula’s classical music festival, and has historically been one of the most popular events of the year on the Long Beach Peninsula.

This year J&O features ZONA CALDA 10:30 – 1pm, and Tall Jazz 2pm – 5pm.
