2nd Thursday of Each Month. Join us for a new kind of combo! A Taste of Jazz at Bailey Contemporary Arts Center features entertaining and educational encounters with the musical genre, accompanied by wine tastings located in an intimate art gallery setting. The introduction to jazz series will showcase the musicians of the Gold Coast Jazz Society Band, under the direction of Martin Hand. Come and learn how jazz evolved and influenced music. Each month our guest artists will further demonstrate the evolution of jazz with examples from various instruments ranging from saxophone and trumpet performed by jazz legends to modern day jazz artists.
The Gold Coast Jazz Society has been a major presenter of jazz concerts, jazz education, and jazz outreach programs in Broward County since 1992. They have maintained and preserved the heritage of jazz by presenting the music celebrating jazz's evolution over the past 100 years.
