36th Clearwater Jazz Holiday Presented by HCI Group Inc.

October 15-18, 2015

What started as a 10-day series of jazz concerts held on the back of a flatbed truck and at venues around the City of Clearwater, has evolved into an annual, international, music festival that draws tens of thousands of visitors each year to beautiful Coachman Park in Clearwater. Celebrating its 36th year, the Clearwater Jazz Holiday is a world-class festival featuring a combination of legendary and relevant musical artists and gathering an amazingly diverse fan base. The festival takes full advantage of its home in Clearwater, Florida, offering music against the backdrop of warm breezes, brilliant sunsets and one of the world's greatest beaches on the Gulf of Mexico.

Over its 35-year history, the Clearwater Jazz Holiday has featured a long and impressive list of legendary jazz talents such as Woody Herman, Buddy Rich, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Mann, Dave Brubeck, Tito Puente, Stephan Grappelli, Stan Getz, and the Count Basie Orchestra. Some other contemporary legends recently gracing the stage include Tony Bennett, Earth, Wind & Fire, Chicago, Bonnie Raitt, The Neville Brothers, Chick Corea, Tower of Power, Dr. John, Little Feat, George Benson, Herbie Hancock, Stanley Clarke, Kenny G, Poncho Sanchez, Natalie Cole, Paquito D'Rivera, and Jean-Luc Ponty.

The Clearwater Jazz Holiday’s modern-day, diverse line-up also covers a wide array of musical styles: straight ahead and smooth jazz, swing, blues, jamband, folk, Americana, funk, and Zydeco and showcases a new generation of innovators and stars. Among those making stops in Clearwater include Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, The Avett Brothers, Brandi Carlile, Soulive, Lake Street Dive, Patti Austin, Esperanza Spalding, Marcus Roberts, Christian McBride, Branford Marsalis, Acoustic Alchemy, Rick Braun, Brian Culbertson, Boney James, Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Mindi Abair, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Spirit Family Reunion, Amos Lee and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros.
