|Oregon Coast Dixieland Jazz Jubilee|
|Seaside - Gearhart|
The massive Oregon Dixieland Jazz Festival has been happening in Seaside, Oregon for over 25 years. Numerous jazz bands will be playing play throughout Seaside again this year February 22-24, 2013.
This music filled event is organized and presented by the Lighthouse Jazz Society, which is a non-profit organization. The Jazz Jubilee is a three day festival that begins on Friday afternoon and runs until Sunday afternoon. There is also a special "Afterglow Party" that takes place Sunday evening after the Jubilee Closing Ceremonies.
The Jubilee is dedicated to preserving the swinging sounds of a "true American" musical art form and bringing that sound to the North Coast area. Whether it's Ragtime, Dixieland, Traditional Jazz, or Swing, the genres of this great music are many and diverse. They always strive to present a Jubilee, which showcases the traditional, while at the same time presenting musicians who are original and fun. Each band, or performer, plays multiple sets through out the Jubilee, and these sets typically average at least an hour. It has not been unheard of, however, for the last set on Saturday night to go much longer (you just have to give the band the right motivation.) Since the bands move between venues, you can find a venue that suits your tastes and catch all the bands as they play that venue, you can follow your favorite band, or you can move between venues experiencing the uniqueness of each.
There are five featured venues and all the venues are located in the downtown area of Seaside. The venues are all within easy walking distance of one another, or there is a free shuttle service running between them. In addition, there is generous parking available. All venues are non-smoking, have food and beverages available, and are handicap accessible. The venues themselves vary from intimate settings allowing for an up close listening experience, to larger rooms that can become quite the party. Since all the bands rotate between venues, we feel certain you'll find the Jubilee experience you desire. Please note that performances at all Jubilee venues are protected by copyright law, therefore, no video, or audio recording is allowed.
We invite you to come to the Jubilee where you will undoubtedly find that your toes will begin tappin' to the music. You may even find yourself swaying to a romantic tune on the dance floor, if not swinging to an up tempo beat.
North Oregon Coast Jazz Jubilee Performer Line-up:
The Oregon Dixieland Jubilee strives to present a performer line-up of the highest caliber. The performers selected to play at the Jazz Jubilee represent some of the best musicians playing Traditional Jazz music today. While these performers often stay "true" to the standards, they also present original pieces, and in the true jazz tradition, add their own style to the music. This makes for a truly entertaining Jubilee, which is certain to delight our audiences.
The 2011 band line-up features some of the hottest names on the jazz circuit. For fans familiar with these artists, we are sure you'll agree this is a top flight bill. For Complete listing CLICK HERE to be directed to the Oregon Coast Dixieland Jubilee website.
