Saturday on the golf course and grounds, patrons will watch Dave Koz with special guest Peabo Bryson.
Koz is a six-time Grammy nominee and a platinum-selling artist who will receive a walk on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this year. He has performed with everyone from Burt Bacharach to U2. Bryson is known for his rich, almost operatic soul voice.
Also Saturday will be the Jazz Attack program, featuring Rick Braun, Jonathan Butler and Richard Elliot.
Braun, an acclaimed contemporary trumpeter, will be joined in the program by Butler, a South African Grammy-nominated songwriter and guitarist who sees music as his salvation, and Elio, a saxophonist known for his easily accessible groove.
Also onstage will be Warren Hill, a Canadian sax sensation; Grammy award-winner and Latin jazz staple Poncho Sanchez; and Nick Colionne, who combines many genres with his baritone voice. On the lawn stage, DW3 and Oli Silk will perform.
DW3 blends R&B, old-school funk, dance and Latin grooves; Oli Silk is a twenty-something British composer and keyboardist who is making waves on both sides of the pond.
Sunday, the golf course and festival grounds will feature performances by Jeffrey Osborne, Peter White and Mindi Abair, and Candy Dulfer.
Osborne, a gold- and platinum-selling performer, has been singing since 1969, and has created Top 40 hits like “Don’t You Get So Mad,” “Stay With Me Tonight” and “Love Power,” which he performed with Dionne Warwick.
Dulfer, who has played the sax since she was 6, has recorded with everyone from Van Morrison to Prince, but holds her own as a solo artist and has topped smooth jazz airway charts.
Peter White and Mindi Abair are a guitar and sax duo who represent the next generation of instrumentalists, with thoughtful yet catchy songs.
The Guitars and Sax showcase will feature Euge Groove, Jeff Golub, Jeff Lorber and Jessy J.
