“Jazz in the Gardens is one of the fastest growing shows in the U.S. right now. We’re booking the best talent in the business. We listen to the fans and who they want to see; and there isn’t a performer we don’t consider. We’re off to a great start with D.L. Hughley, Trey Songz, Kelly Rowland, Mint Condition, Rachelle Ferrell and Boney James. The fan feedback has been very positive and we have more A-list artists to add,” said Scott Gartner, producer, AEG Live. “If you like good food, soul, rhythm and blues and jazz, you’re going to love this show,” he added.
