About

Sunshine Jazz Organization's" 36th Season opens with a very special tribute to the extraordinary founder of The South Florida Jazz Hall of Fame, the late, great Ms. Alice Day! The International Jazz, Gospel Diva, Recording Artist, Songstress, Radio Personality and all around Dynamic Artist was deeply passionate about Jazz History. Having grown up in the heart of Miami during the Hey Day of Jazz, Alice Day was proud and grateful for the amazing amount of Jazz music generated and home grown in FLA over many decades. So in 2009, after returning from several years of Europe and Far East tours including residencies in Switzerland and Thailand, Lady Day returned home to Miami to care for her family. Alice used this opportunity at home to create the means to pay tribute to her many colleagues, mentors and all manner of Jazz heroes. On October 19th, 2009, while celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Day's music career, the 1st South Florida Jazz Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Concert was launched! We will celebrate Alice Day's legacy and also there will be a tribute to dear dear friend Brenda Alford who recently passed. The ceremony will feature five additional prolific Jazz musicians who also share their many wisdoms as dedicated Educators. This year's SFJHOF Inductees will include: Brenda Alford, Curtis Lundy, Christopher Dorsey, Jim Gasior, Ric Powell and Bob Grabowski. Stay tuned for more announcements, concert info, and do please share the news and reserve your seats for The 12th Annual South Florida Jazz Hall of Fame, Friday, October 7th at the Sandrell Rivers Black Box Theater in Liberty City! Free garage parking, cash bar, great sound and vibes! As Ms. Day always exclaimed, "We hope to see your Face in the Place!" ...
