This Saturday was one of the best in the past five years. Dave Bennett is the ultimate showman. He is very talented and very entertaining. Nanette and the Hotsy Totsy Boys were the newest group we heard and they were great. Nanette's rendition of...continued

Our second time, and we'll go again! Non stop music with some of the best. Be sure to spend time with the piano soloists; they are amazing! "Tickling the ivory" doesn't begin to describe it. More like fingers of neutrino!

Lots of choices of bands. Several play more than one time, so if you have a conflict between several you want to hear you can catch them at different times. The quality of bands is very good. Nice to have food and outside vendors available as well.

I love this jazz festival, as the music is always great and it is wonderful to hear old time jazz being played. I go each year on Thanksgiving day, as the Town and Country hotel has a wonderful Thanksgiving buffet, so you can eat and then spend...continued

The festival is always great given the wide array of different jazz bands. One can move from one to the other and enjoy many sounds or stay in one venue and enjoy as the jazz bands come to you.

The musicians, especially Dave Bennet, were outstanding. The hotel caused MUCH confusion by not placing arrows or directions to the front auto exit requiring drivers to drive around searching for a way out. It took us 22" after locating the exit...continued

Enjoyable, but repetitious in style. A couple of stars--Stephanie Trick, and Sue Palmer and her group.
