A popular Southwest Florida tradition concludes its 34th season as The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club hosts its final 2019 installment of the annual SummerJazz on the Gulf concert series in September.
The fun, free concert series combines a diverse array of musical entertainment with beautiful views of the gulf, breathtaking sunsets, refreshing breezes, and a relaxing atmosphere. Each concert is held on the AAA Four-Diamond beachfront resort’s scenic Watkins Lawn overlooking the gulf. SummerJazz on the Gulf takes place one Saturday evening per month June to September, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
The summer series wraps up this year with Ari & The Alibis on Saturday, Sept. 14. The previous three summer concerts featured Alter Eagles, Late Night Brass and Pocket Change.
“We will conclude this year’s SummerJazz with another new addition, Ari & The Alibis, which will put on a very fun, high-energy show. It promises to be a terrific concert series,” according to Susan Savino, director of conference services at The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club and organizer of the annual concert series.
Performing at SummerJazz for the first time, the gifted 5-piece band has been receiving impressive accolades since it formed in 2013, which includes being nominated for “Best Local Band” in the Tampa Bay area, and powerhouse vocalist Arielleh “Ari” McManus for “Best Jazz Vocalist” in the Tampa Bay area. Infusing Funk, Jazz and Samba with Blues, Soul and Rock, the band has performed throughout the U.S. and Canada.
