South Florida JAZZ
South Florida JAZZ (SFJ) was founded in 1991 by a cadre of Hollywood jazz-loving residents with the ambitious goal of expanding their municipal jazz festival into a national event featuring the finest jazz artists extant. Within three years, SFJ had taken over full production of the event that would consistently present a plethora of jazz legends and stars, while also featuring the very best of the abundant Florida jazz artists, both professional and collegiate, over three days and nights. The Hollywood Jazz Festival was the signature jazz event for the region through 2005. The SFJ seasonal concert series, which began in 1996, is acclaimed for its superior talent, literally from around the globe. Our cultural partnership with Bailey Hall that began in 2018, gives “South Florida JAZZ at Bailey Hall” an outstanding presentation venue from this time onward.
