Power Access, the non-profit organization that produces the annual South Beach Jazz Festival (SBJF), in association with The Rhythm Foundation, is excited to announce the full line-up for the 6th Annual South Beach Jazz Festival, January 7-9, 2022. Highlighted by multi-Grammy® award-winning legends The Blind Boys of Alabama in their exclusive Florida appearance on Friday, January 7, at the North Beach Bandshell in Miami Beach.

In their long-awaited return to Miami Beach, the one-hundred-member Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida will close Saturday’s program.



On Sunday, the festival will conclude with the introduction of multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer Munir Hossn leading his all-female backing ensemble de Elas with his world mix of progressive Brazilian Jazz.



The festival also proudly serves as a showcase for the next generation of Jazz talent at the Jazz for Tomorrow Student Stage on Saturday, January 8th. The program features The Miami Lighthouse Youth Band, the Jazz Educators Community Coalition Ensemble (JECC), The University of Miami Jazz Quintet featuring Kaleen Barton, and the exciting Florida Memorial University (FMU) Jazz Royalty Ensemble, a twenty-person Big Band experience.
