ABOUT the JAZZ ECLECTIC concert series

Bringing jazz to the forefront of the mainstream market – that place where jazz crosses over into multi-genres.

For those with a low tolerance for jazz, we've taken a genre-bending approach, or what we call "Jazz Republic", eroding the boundaries between jazz and mainstream music, writing and performing original music in a vocabulary that combines elements of all.

To this end, we present an eclectic blend of world-renowned artists including GRAMMY Award-Winning and GRAMMY Nominees whose original music and artistry embody what we call "The Art and Lifestyle of Jazz".
