Savannah and "All that Jazz!"

When anyone thinks of the music scene of the Southern states, there are a few genres that come to mind. Blues, folk, country… And of course, America’s infectious and indigenous musical art form, jazz! The very first Jazz Festival in Savannah was in October 1, 1983 in Grayson Stadium. The creators of the event, who were then students of a jazz appreciation class taught by Ben Tucker at Savannah State University, also created The Coastal Jazz Association.

Savannah’s Jazz Festival helps to unify the coastal community as well as its many visitors through a shared passion for music. Whether you’re playing or simply listening, everyone’s encouraged to attend this year’s Jazz Fest, September 21st-27th. The last three days of this festival will be held at Forsyth Park, a stone’s throw away from the our very own Inn, where you’ll be welcomed to view our home-grown local phenomena!

Velvet Caravan is one that’s gotten very popular, combining the sounds of Gypsy, folk, jazz, swing, and even Latin. See them for yourself and try to believe that they only recently have gotten their start in a local coffee shop, playing for Foxy Loxy’s ‘Acoustic Tuesdays.’ Foxy Loxy is still hosting rising talent every week, right on 37th St and Bull St.
Of course, the music scene in Savannah is always thriving! From the street musicians on River Street, to the local bands playing in coffee shops or bars, to even Savannah-grown legends; it’s nearly impossible to even take a walk without witnessing genius in the making!

Among Savannah’s upcoming musical talents, our own breakfast chef, Chris, is also the talented drummer for a classic rock band called @SunDown. Incorporating 70's to current rock ‘n roll cover versions and original material too! This week, they’re scheduled for a show in Hinesville. For those who enjoy music off the beaten track, why not take a road trip to Gata’s Sports Bar? So be sure to attend if you’d like to start the month of music off with timeless classics!
