Forsyth Park Bandshell
HEY, listen. We have been living here in Savannah GA for a long time and we enjoy sharing the best of what our city has to offer with our guests. Let me tell YOU, this Jazz Festival is surely one of the best things Savannah has to offer. By way of live music, it is arguably the best, especially because OUR B&B is just minutes away from the main music stage in Forsyth Park.
A little bit of Savannah Jazz Festival history…
The Savannah Jazz Festival is made possible through the efforts of the Coastal Jazz Association – a nationally recognized non-profit organization dedicated to preserving America’s original music: Jazz. We find ourselves taking for granted that musical genre that explores the span of human emotion, expressing our own thoughts succinctly, wonderfully and instrumentally – if only we take time to listen.
The first Savannah Jazz Festival was held at Grayson Stadium on October 1, 1983. The events started as a way for the late Ben Tucker to lend his knowledge and talents to a group of folks interested in learning more about jazz. This year will be especially poignant, as we are sure a lot of the festivities will be celebrated in memory of Ben’s great life, for the legendary bassist from Savannah passed away tragically this year on June 4, 2013.
