Please join us for the 11th Annual Oceanside Jazz Festival at MiraCosta College on Saturday May 6, 2017. I am extremely excited to announce that this year’s featured guest is prolific percussionist Lenny Castro.
The educational festival is an all day event. For the past several years we have successfully piloted a new format that has been found to be quite beneficial. Feedback has been very positive from both students and directors.
In his prolific career Lenny Castro has performed and recorded with hundreds of jazz and pop stars including Adele, the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, The Crusaders, Quincy Jones, Wayne Shorter, and many others. Lenny will be featured with our 2016 and 2015 Downbeat Award winning big band MOJO at the evening concert and present a free master class earlier in the day.
Each band will receive…
A customizable 45 minute clinic / performance time slot with three of our world-class adjudicators
A video of your performance/clinic in our state of the art facilities
Voice recordings of adjudicator’s comments
Written comment sheets
A rating based on the culmination of the judges remarks

Troy Bar "Hoxton Jam" featuring Steve Torok, 10 Hoxton St, Hackney, London
Steve is proud to be headlining the Hoxton Jam at the Troy Bar in London. Guest artists are featured for the first set followed by a killer jam. Steve selected some challenging Brecker and Stern tunes plus his own stuff for this one. The players are really killer. Fantastic fun!
The "Hoxton Jam" has received great reviews and is one of the most successful jam nights located in central London. Throughout the last 3 years the jam night has developed a family of great professional session players of all ages and styles, that show up every Wednesday sharing their skills and experience, and socializing with other musicians.
Jamey Johnson Band at Mission Fest, Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park, San Juan Capistrano, CA
Eleven-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson is “one of the greatest country singers of our time,” according to the Washington Post. He is one of only a few people in the history of country music to win two Song of the Year Awards from both the CMA and ACMs.
His 2008 album, That Lonesome Song, was certified platinum for 1 million in sales, and his 2010 ambitious double album, The Guitar Song, received a gold certification. In addition, he won two Song of the Year Trophies, for “Give It Away” and “In Color,” both from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association. He has received tremendous praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal and other publications, many of which have hailed his albums as masterpieces.
