(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
The second annual Cayman Jazz Fest will be held December 1-3 in Grand Cayman, the Cayman Islands with headliners George Duke, Al Jarreau, Earl Klugh, Ravi Coltrane, Najee, and Yolanda Adams. Local Caymanian musicians will also be featured in the festival, including Intransit, Hi Tide, Pandemonium Steelband, Barrie and Chuck with their island jazz band SEA N'B, and KayKay.
"This year should definitely put the Cayman Jazz Fest on the 'must go to' calendar of international jazz events," said the Hon. Charles E. Clifford, Cayman Islands Minister of Tourism. "Visitors will get the whole package: a great vacation and the best music the world has to offer."
"Our team at BET Jazz and BET Event Productions are pleased with this partnership and we enjoy working with the Cayman Islands. This destination has everything required to make this festival successful. It's a beautiful island with wonderful people, great hotels and restaurants, and more importantly, the artists are excited to make the trip," said Paxton Baker, executive VP and general manager of BET Digital Networks and president of BET Event Productions. "This year will be even better than last year, and we are looking forward to presenting the concerts on BET, BET Jazz, and the VH1 Digital Networks."
