Naples is a wonderful place to visit and an even better place to spend your golden years, especially when you remain active and vibrant. One of the charms of this upscale south Florida town is the easy access to exceptional music. If you love warm weather, good music, and outdoor concerts, Naples Beach is the place to be this summer.
Summertime Jazz on the Gulf
Hosted at the Naples Beach & Golf Club, the 2019 Summerjazz on the Gulf concert series is sure to be crowd-pleaser. Scheduled for one night every month from July through September, the outdoor concert series will present a range of live musical events that are varied enough to include most musical tastes.
Despite the name, Summerjazz on the Gulf includes more than just jazz. In fact, the first three evenings of the four-night series will feature an Eagles tribute band, a hard-rocking musical group with plenty of brass, as well as a combo that recreates smooth R&B and the most memorable songs of Motown. On the fourth evening of the series, an award winning jazz vocal band will take the stage to close the event in style.
