Jazz and Blues by the Bay to Expand Musical Offerings in 2020

Post Date:10/11/2019 4:10 PM

Beginning in 2020, Sausalito's summertime Jazz and Blues by the Bay concert series will begin including a few bands on the schedule that are not classified as jazz or blues.

The decision to explore different musical genres is based on an online survey conducted by the Parks and Recreation Department, in which 117 of 134 registered participants said they would be open to musical alternatives. Other than jazz and blues, survey respondents selected the following genres as their favored alternatives:
  • Folk/Bluegrass/Americana
  • Rock
  • R&B/Funk
  • Oldies
  • Latin/World Music
In other findings, 75% of respondents rated their experience at Jazz and Blues by the Bay as good or great, 80% said they would recommend the concert series to a friend, and "socializing" was rated just ahead of "music" for what people like best. Additional results and findings may be found in the slides from an October 8 presentation to the City Council by Recreation Supervisor Julie Myers.

Any questions about the survey or about the Jazz and Blues by the Bay concert series may be directed to Julie Myers at jmyers@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4152.
