The ninth edition of the ‘Jazz in the Gardens’ festival will take place March 14-16 in Sun Life Stadium, featuring headliners for both the young and the young-at-heart.
The event will be headlined by R&B artists Trey Songz, Kelly Rowland and Mint Condition and jazz saxophonist Boney James.
Rowland, best known as a judge on the singing competition The X Factor and as member of the R&B group Destiny’s Child, released her fourth solo album “Talk a Good Game” this summer. James released his latest album “The Beat” in April.
Additionally, Rachelle Ferrell, a jazz and R&B vocalist, will make an appearance after missing last year’s show due to an illness. More performers are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
The festival will be hosted by comedian D.L. Hughley and features multiple events throughout the weekend, including a women’s conference on Mar. 14 and a pre-party with celebrity guests at the nearby Calder Casino.
“We haven’t even started and this party is already looking good, I’m happy to be on the JITG team,” said Hughley in a statement.
Last year’s event drew over 60,000 fans, a record for the festival, and was headlined by Ne-Yo, Earth Wind & Fire, Charlie Wilson and featured numerous other performers.
Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Friday at the stadium box office, the Jazz in the Gardens website and via Ticketmaster.
