South Beach Jazz Festival festival is an event unlike any other, as each musical performance will showcase the artistry of at least one person with a disability. The sheer talent of the artists will promote the festival’s dual goal, to entertain, and to define others by ability rather than disability. The festival is all about bringing our community together through the universal sound of music. Performances at the Colony Theatre, on stages set up throughout Lincoln Road, at Hotel Astor and Rare. Many of the events free and open to the public. Proceeds benefit Power Access, Inc.
Join “Santa’s Helpers” Ana Quincoces, Mariana Rodriguez, Adriana Catano, Roxy Vargas and DJ Africa and make the holidays brighter for South Florida youngsters. Bring an unwrapped toy or make a minimum donation of $20 at the door and enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, music, dancing, cigars and that swell feeling of helping others less fortunate. The event benefits Miami Children’s Health Foundation.
