I have not personally been to Delaware in October, but there’s a pretty major jazz festival happening October 12th-15th. It is called the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival. They bill themselves as the The Greatest Jazz Festival in the World!
I have no reason to disagree with them, because the lineup is pretty stellar. Even thought this is billed as a festival, these are separate concerts at different venues, so it is not all-inclusive. You can pick and choose which shows you wan to attend.
Most of the top artists will be there to perform. Let’s see who they have on tap:
On Thursday, October 12th, West Coast Jam will hit the stage at the Cape Henlopeon Performing Arts Theater. West Coast Jam consists of Norman Brown, Rick Braun and Richard Elliot.
If that is not enough, Nick Colionne and Eric Daruis will open the show.
Now that is a great start!
