Long Beach, CA – (July 12, 2017) – It’s the most consistent, the most upscale, and the most celebrated family-produced jazz festival in Southern California. It’s the 30th Annual Long Beach Jazz Festival (LBJF) #LBJazzFest and under the direction of Kimberly Benoit, President of Rainbow Promotions, LLC., this annual event, for three days, will again transform Rainbow Lagoon Park into an oasis of premier music, food, health awareness and fun.

OFTEN DECLARED the Crème de la Crème of Southern California’s festivals, August 11-13, 2017, #LBJazzfest delivers class, sophistication and ambience like no other! AND… because it’s the 30th year celebration, all the bells and whistles are in order. The stellar lineup promises the best in jazz—from traditional to contemporary and fusion, funk, smooth jazz, Latin jazz plus rhythm & blues—genres for every jazz lover.

For over 2 decades, the #LBJazzFest has been a trailblazer consistently refining the essence of a premier jazz festival beyond celebrated artists and mellow ambience.
