They strive to showcase between four and six bands, including a traditional jazz band, a contemporary/smooth jazz band, a Latin jazz band, and a headliner. The headlining bands for the 2005-2009 festivals were Kevin Mahogany, Kathy Kosins, Ron Gutierrez, Lisa Henry, and Les Lankhorst, respectively. There will be two stages at the festival, including an emerging artist stage. Compensation for bands will be all-inclusive, including travel. Out-of-country bands need not apply. They are looking for talented, reasonably priced (preferably not exceeding $2000) local/regional artists or those artists traveling through the area.
