Better every year! We're excited to host a 'coming-out-of-a-pandemic' festival and give your band the experience they need to keep moving forward.  Let us know if your school needs an outdoor option.

Judges: We are still planning a top rate judging panel and convenient on-stage clinics as we have done in the past.

Guest Artist:  Jacob Mann is writing some very fun music for big bands as well as other projects. His amazing piano playing is the perfect thing to inspire your students.  There will be a Saturday night concert with Jacob and clinics over the course of the two days.

If there are any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the department at (805) 546-3195.  We are committed to providing an excellent experience for all of our participants.  Thanks once again for choosing to attend the Central Coast Jazz Festival.  We look forward to seeing you March 10th and 11th.
