Darlene’s San Jose Jazz Fest Top 5 Picks


This is a whole lot more than my Top 5 picks. I’m trying to branch out this year at the San Jose Jazz Summer Fest 2017 and not live at the Salsa Stage so this is my schedule of performers that I personally want to see. I’ve got a little bit of everything but it leans towards Salsa, Funk and R&B  and it is just a snippet of the full lineup they’ve got planned this year. My Top 5 pick have videos and the rest are all great picks too, but there’s just not enough time to see them all!    See FULL SCHEDULE
