Next weekend we have really good seats (4th row center) and again VIP, but the food wont be as high end or the booze either, but it's free. Acts will be Chicken Foot, Puddle of Mudd and Huey Lewis. This weekend is in my home town, so the lodging will be comfortable and I will have my home field advantage.
What do any of those acts have to do with jazz? Elvis Costello has done some but the rest really haven't.

South Side Midnight Lady or Dark Eyed Cajun Woman are about as jazzy as the Doobies get and I don't remember seeing anyone clain that Night Ranger is jazzy.

Kenny G is NOT jazz. Smooth jazz isn't really jazz, either. It's just usually instrumental music that's a little more adventurous than Muzak.

Agreed, the "Jazz" festival has not been a whole lot of Jazz over the last few tears. There was a group I had never heard of called Umphrey McGee that was kinda jazzy, but I didn't like them. I wouldn't go if it was all Jazz not my stuff. The Telluride Blues and Brews is true to the "Blues" and hard to beat. The Aspen show over the last few years is all about the private sponcers and impressing their rich friends. The Black Eyed Peas was paid for by one private individual from what I heard. I know the name of the person but I won't drop her name, a make up mogel, you would recognize her name.
Next weekend "Rock Jam" will be rock, for sure.

Nickleback at the Gorge in WA...2nd time...amazing show. Funny how some of our friends were like- gee I didn't know they had such "potty mouths" after the show. It's like they didn't even know the band at all. Great show! Go if you can.

Marshall Tucker Band, 38 Special, Puddle of Mud, and Chicken Foot last Sat. Tucker sucked, 38 O.K., Puddle of Mudd surprised me and rocked the joint, even threw in some crazy AC/DC "TNT" and Chicken Foot was just O.K. barely. Musical talent for sure with these guys but all their songs sound the same. We left early and beat the crowds.

My first ever concert was Johnny Cash at the famous Circle Star Theater in Redwood City, CA. I think I was around 10. Thanks Grandma for getting me started right!
