With more than 25 headliners playing in a giant jazz jam, each Bash is a once-in-a-lifetime concert for both the artists and the audience. The music will never happen in exactly the same way again. The listeners know that the event is something special � it has sold out ever year since 1997! Horn man Tony Guerrero will again emcee this musical fest, which will bring together a lineup of vocalists and instrumentalists, all to benefit KSBR radio.

Who�s Playing: More than 25 of your favorite Jazz! Musicians in a giant Jazz! Jam. We never know for sure who will be there (and we always have surprises).

The roster from our previous shows is a virtual �who�s who� of contemporary jazz. While we obviously can't list all of the dozens of past performers, just a few of those who have donated their time include Larry Carlton, Joe Sample, Tom Scott, Boney James, Patti Austin, Richard Elliott, Bob James, Peter White, Craig Chaquico, Gerald Albright, Warren Hill, Chris Botti, Diane Schur, Eric Marienthal, Brian Bromberg, Jeff Kashiwa, Ronnie Laws, Gabriela Anders, Grant Geissman, Tim Weisberg, Rob Mullins, Max Bennett, Joe McBride, Marilyn Scott, Thom Rotella, Pamela Williams, Chris Standring, Slim Man, Melvin Davis, and Freddie Ravel. KSBR's tradition is to announce one performing artist each day, starting on May 1st!

When: Sunday, May 29th. Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend. Gates open at 3:00pm. The concert is scheduled to start at 5:00 pm. Food and beverages available for sale.
