Jazz & Oysters ~ Ocean Park ~ August 19
The Wilson Field (25815 Sandridge Road, Ocean Park) will transform into a veritable, outdoor jazz club on Sunday, Aug. 19, from noon to 7PM, with a stellar line up of performers. Top Latin jazz vocalist Jessie Marquez opens at noon, followed by traditional jazz, swing and blues favorites by 1st Thursday Jazz quartet. The Jovino Satos Neto Quintet, led by three-time, Latin Grammy nominee Jovino Santos Neto, closes with “a creative blend of energetic grooves, deep harmonies, telepathic improvisation, lyrical melodies and great ensemble playing, inspired and informed by the colorful richness of Brazilian music.” Complementing the music will be offerings of locally harvested Willapa Bay oysters, sausages, desserts and beverages. Tickets are available online and are priced at $20 for adults and $10 for children ages 6 through 18, for lawn seating (chairs and/or blankets suggested). A combo pass to Blues and Seafood events and Jazz & Oysters is $40.
