Jazz Hands

The best jazz fest this side of Nawlins

Full_scaggs

You. Her. The summer wind carrying strains of sultry slide guitar.

Welcome to the Russian River Jazz & Blues Fest, returning September 21-22 to woo you both away to wine country.

Nestled amongst tall redwood forests, hundreds of vineyards, and the scenic waterfront of Johnson's Beach & Resort, this intimate festival celebrates its 37th year with jazz luminaries Boz Scaggs and Gregory Porter.

Saddle up to local wine tastings (think: Rodney Strong, Korbel) and an ethnic food court, before hitting the water with daily canoe, kayak, and paddle boat rentals.

Come evening, cozy up to the fire at one of the Johnson's Beach campsites.

Live music, fine wines, and the great outdoors? This summer's far from over.
