Jazz Artists scheduled to perform include –

  • Najee – the versatile saxophonist-whose first two recordings, 1986’s Grammy nominated Najee’s Theme and 1988’s Day By Day, went platinum-inspired the whole urban vibe that took over the instrumental world throughout the ’90s.Also made a dramatic return to the scene with his highly anticipated Heads Up debut My Point of Viewwhich was released August 23, 2005.
  • Fantasia – she delivers teen-pop and classics from the American songbook with equal conviction is a testament to the versatility of singer Fantasia Barrino. Confident to the degree you could consider her brash.

  • Steel Pulse – can’t do without mentioning the internationally acclaimed reggae band who began life in the back streets of Birmingham, England in the early Seventies, are still very much alive today.Steel Pulse have consistently surprised and delighted me with their innovative and infectious style of conscious reggae music, led from the front by the melodious tones of David Hinds.

Other Aritist schedule to preform at the Festival are

  • Ludacris
  • Stanley Roots
  • Elephant Man
  • Yolanda Adams
  • Keno and Kaz
  • Tropical Soul Band….. and many others
