Cape May Jazz Festival, November 9-11, 2012

Many of you have been supporters and visitors to the Cape May Jazz Festival over the years.  This year, Cape  May will be sponsoring the new Exit 0 Jazz Festival.  While Hurricane Sandy has dampened the travel plans of many, we want you to know that the Festival is still planned for November 9-11.  The website for the festival includes lots of details, but the overview for the event is as follows:

The inaugural edition of the Exit 0 International Jazz Festival kicks off November 9-11, 2012 in Cape May, NJ. The Festival features headliner Ramsey Lewis & his Electric Band on the Main Stage of the Cape May Convention Hall, Saturday, November 10. World class musicians, including Christian McBride & Inside Straight, Nicholas Payton, Mark Murphy, Claudia Acuna, the Orrin Evans led Captain Black Big Band and many more will perform throughout the weekend on both the Main Stage in Cape May Convention Hall and in 8 intimate Festival club venues.

The brand new Convention Hall in Cape May will serve as the Festival’s Main Stage. An early and late show is scheduled on both Friday and Saturday night. Christian McBride & Inside Straight perform Friday, and on Saturday the Festival hosts NEA Jazz Master Ramsey Lewis. The Main Stage will be set up “bistro” style – imagine the brand new Convention Hall decked out like a 500 seat jazz bistro, who woulda’ thunk it – on both Friday and Saturday nights with table service for drinks. On the Saturday afternoon session, theater style seating will be set up in Convention Hall.

For those who are not still reeling from Hurricane Sandy, this event may be just what you need to relax and unwind.
