5 Secret Stars at 2014 Bash Jazz Festival
Melissa Manchester joins one-of-a-kind all star line-up
At most festivals, one band takes the stage, followed by a break, and then another band, and so forth. But at the KSBR Birthday Bash, the headliners leave their bands behind and play with each other in an all-star musical party. Contractual obligations keep us from announcing 5 of this year’s biggest stars, but last year’s secret stars included Dave Koz, Mindi Abair, Rick Braun, and Peter White! Altogether, there will be more than 35 performers at the 2014 Bash. CLICK HERE for the latest on who we can announce.
More Restaurants added to Taste
Taste of Bash included with Birthday Bash Jazz Festival Ticket
There are now more than a dozen restaurants and wineries lined up to offer samplings of their tasty dishes. CLICK HERE for the latest list (more are confirming almost every day). There is no extra charge for the tastings, so come for the food, and stay for the great music!
