By showcasing highly acclaimed musicians with disabilities prominently in the programming all weekend, The South Beach Jazz Festival promotes its mission of awareness, accessibility, and inclusion in the arts. Join us as we celebrate the sheer talent and musical abilities of The Blind Boys of Alabama. The Blind Boys of Alabama are recognized worldwide as living legends of gospel music. Celebrated by The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the Recording Academy with Lifetime Achievement Awards, inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, and winners of five Grammy® Awards, they have attained the highest levels of achievement in a career that spans over 70 years. SBJF ticket holders can expect a roof-raising musical event that appeals to audiences of all cultures. The New York Times says, "They proclaim their reverence in close harmonies and gutsy improvisations that leap heavenward." Don't miss the opportunity to see them live in Miami Beach!
New Orleans-born, award-winning saxophonist Donald Harrison will open for The Blind Boys of Alabama. Harrison is a musician/composer who master musicians consider a master of every Jazz era, soul, funk, and composer of orchestral classical music. Harrison has been named to the National Endowment for the Arts' 2022 Jazz Masters class. Harrison and his Quartet will stun the SBJF audience with their ability to blend the swing beat of modern Jazz with hip-hop, funk, and soul music. All About Jazz says Harrison is "one of the most confident and convincing improvisers in jazz today.” The Donald Harrison Quartet includes Donald Harrison on saxophone, Joe Dyson on drums, Nori Naraoka on bass, and Dan Kaufman on piano.
The South Beach Jazz Festival will occur in venues throughout Miami Beach on January 7-9, 2022. The festival takes pride in featuring world-renowned musicians who also have disabilities. Classic, Latin, and New Orleans styles of Jazz are featured. Most of the performances are free, open to the public, and outdoors. The sounds of Jazz enliven the city all weekend long and draw locals and guests from around the world to listen, linger and enjoy. Tickets to the Blind Boys of Alabama and the Donald Harrison Quartet range from $35 - $75. Miami Beach residents can use code LOCAL for a special discount on tickets. Club Level Tables (for 6) are available for $450. Tickets - https://www.venuepilot.co/events/38555/orders/new
