CATALINA ä¸ Catalina Island will once again host the world’s oldest smooth jazz festival, JazzTrax, October 14-17 and October 21-24. The festival will open on Thursday October 14 and 21 with Unplugged Under the Stars at Descanso Beach Club and will continue every weekend from Friday to Sunday in the 1929 casino ballroom. The JazzTrax festival arrived in Catalina in 1987 and will celebrate his 34th birthday on the island. The Catalina Island JazzTrax Festival has a unique vibe that takes listeners from an open-air opening under the stars on Descanso Beach Club past an intimate outdoor stage with beach seating, lined lounge chairs, and sections of white chairs at the Private cabanas that sleep four each inside inside the historic Avalon Ballroom at Wrigley Casino from 1929 overlooking the ocean from six floors above the Pacific. The festival requires that participants present proof of vaccination with the last vaccine administered at least two weeks before the event and masks will be required to move around the site. A negative COVID-19 test will not be enough for this event. The event is subject to COVID-19 regulations for Los Angeles County. Opening weekend will feature keyboardist Lisa Addeo on Thursday, October 14 at Unplugged Under the Stars and singer and saxophonist Mindi Abair at 7:30 p.m. /www.jazztrax.com/schedule/.
