Some visitors come to Marco Island for the party. Others come to chill with family. The SummerJazz on the Gulf celebration is a fine example of both.
Partygoers can indulge in the large crowds, the drinks, and the jams floating over the water. Lazy vacation escapists can appreciate the soothing music, the breathtaking water views, and the luxurious summer weather with the cool breeze breathing through the air.
The SummerJazz on the Gulf is the de-facto jazz festival near Naples Florida. Every year, this grand event comes in and delivers the goods: silky smooth jams, amazing drinks, and a calm and collected attitude to fit the ideal Florida attitude. Come this summer for some lovely jazz music on the Gulf of Mexico and some inspired drinks.
The Headliner, Late Night Brass
Late Night Brass is the headliner for the event on Saturday, July 14th, and they know how to really put on a show. The group consists of 10 to 15 total players from all walks of life. Some are newer players while others are seasoned veterans of their selected instrument.
The group has headlined this yearly SummerJazz event since 2009, without ever missing a year. They are integral to the enthusiasm and excitement of this jazz-themed island event escape.
The event takes place at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. The hotel is the main sponsor and the organization largely responsible for keeping this event vibrant and thriving. Other sponsors include Insurance and Risk Management Services, Inc. and Cigna.
This Naples Beach event is also completely free. It could not be this way without their valuable support in the local community of vacation rentals. The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club is located at 851 Gulf Shore Blvd. N. Naples, FL 34102.
You can expect to find an accommodating and smooth event, run by professionals who know how to deliver the brass music in the summer in the best possible way.
The event space has many chairs available. You may want to arrive early to nab a spot up close. Also be prepared to bring your own beach chairs if the ones available are all being used. This is a simple way to make sure you are comfortable for the silky jazz of the evening.
The event is right on the water. So as the jazz coats the evening sunset, you can still see its tender glow over the Gulf of Mexico. What better way to take in the world of Marco Island?
And this is really what being on the island is all about. This free outdoor event is your ticket to a soothing and ambient early evening in July.
