THE GROOVE IS BACK IN MIAMI GARDENS.
Music fans, rejoice! The 15th annual Jazz in the Gardens Music Fest returns this March, and the featuring acts include none other than Mary J. Blige, H.E.R., SWV, The Roots, The Isley Brothers, and more. And the mayor of Miami Gardens, Rodney Harris, couldn’t be more excited.
“We are happy to announce the return of Jazz in the Gardens, and we are also excited about bringing talented, award-winning artists to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the festival that showcases music and the culture and diversity of Miami Gardens.”
Shawn Gee, the president of Live Nation Urban and the event’s co-producer, agrees. “Jazz in the Gardens is one of the most important live events in the culture of jazz and R&B music globally. Our goal is not only to produce a stellar event, but also to let the world know about the hidden gem that the City of Miami Gardens has with this event.” Hosted by syndicated radio personality and comedian Rickey Smiley, the show will adhere to strict social distancing protocols and entrance will be restricted to those with a valid COVID-19 vaccination card or a negative rapid test.
