My second year at The Playboy Jazz Fest. and I would highly recommend going to this! Loved it all, especially The Brubeck Quartet, Trombone Shorty, India Arie and of course the finale with Sheila E!! Inspiring!

I've come to the Jazz Fest many times and was here on Saturday ,as well. Sunday was a little too slow moving until 8 pm. Nicer to have an interesting mix. Many of us didn't enjoy the South African singing group...too repetitive. Saturday was better!

As always, PJF is THE event we look forward to each year. It's a "grown folks party". The only drawback was George Lopez. What a disappointment. He was dry and not entertaining AT ALL. A robot could have done what he did. He walked out and...continued

The music was AWESOME! Especially the set by Trombone Shorty...he probably received one of the only full standing ovations I've ever seen at the Bowl. I did want to note that the Goldstar tickets said something about a Goldstar willcall line,...continued

The venue is one of my favorites but for this event, you were lucky if your seat was in the shade (ours were) on this hot, sunny, SoCal afternoon. The event was fun and the artists were spectacular but as the evening wore on the crowd became more...continued

This was a real disappointment. Did Bill cosby make the difference in the lineup and the people. Cedric the Entertainer would have been a better host. I will give it another try next yera but I fear that this classic venue is at it's end.
