MARCH 6 - 8, 2015

At the Portola Hotel & Spa and Monterey Conference Center

Welcome to Monterey Bay, where we’ve been presenting the best in early jazz, big band, swing, ragtime, blues, zydeco and gypsy jazz for 35 years!

The Original Wildcat Jass Band

The Original Wildcat Jass Band, comprised of six world-class musicians, offers traditional New Orleans and Chicago jazz, performed in a spirit and style that is true to its musical roots and wildly popular with audiences across the United States. Their energetic performances are sizzling with musical energy and steeped in good humor. These "doctors of jazz" have found the cure for the common blues — it's red-hot jazz, and it's contagious!
