Capital Jazz Festival Background

Located in the suburbs of Washington D.C., this world famous jazz fest has become one of the most anticipated summer events on the East Coast year after year. Since jazz music was born in the South during the late 19th century, it has become one of the most beloved music genres not only in America, but also all over the world. Legends like Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong helped spread jazz to all four corners of the earth, its melodic and smooth sound resonating everywhere from small cafes in Spain to street corners in New Orleans. Although music has progressed since the ever-soulful Jazz Age, this unique music has inspired new musical genres and has also taken on new shapes itself, such as rock-infused jazz to smooth jazz. No matter what type of jazz music you love most, you can certainly find it at the Capital Jazz Festival.

In addition to its impressive lineup of the world's best jazz musicians as well as up and coming jazz artists, the Capital Jazz Fest hosts a variety of entertainment options. In between listening to your favorite jazz artists, you can explore arts and crafts centers, indulge in the many delectable culinary treats strewn throughout the festival grounds, and attend meet and greets where you can fawn over your favorite musicians. And don't even think about turning in early, because the parties last well into the night, with the soulful and sultry jazz beats piercing the air until the early morning. The Capital Jazz Fest in Columbia is one of the biggest jazz festivals in the world, and it's an all-around good time, so make sure to buy your tickets for this weekend getaway from StubHub!

Trivia

Did you know that the saxophone wasn't used to create jazz music until the 1920s?

Although jazz was born in the late 19th century, its most recognizable instrument wasn't added to the genre until the 1920s. The saxophone was originally recognized as a Belgian instrument that was solely used in chambers and orchestral performances. Once America's 6 Brown Brothers incorporated the brass instrument to their soulful jazz sound, it added that extra flavor that makes jazz so alluring. To this day, the saxophone remains somewhat synonymous with jazz music, and you can hardly picture jazz without this unique instrument!
