Friday’s show features several of our most requested acts, including the Neo-Soul crooner Anthony Hamilton and the festival favorite Stephanie Mills. Trombone Shorty will certainly raise the roof at the Festival, and the evening rounds out with the smooth jazz favorite Jonathan Butler.

Saturday’s show features all-time favorite Charlie Wilson. “Uncle Charlie” will continue to thrill Festival patrons with hits like “There Goes My Baby” and “You Are.” Making only his second appearance at the Festival will be the incredible Chris Botti - one of the greatest jazz trumpeters alive today. Multi-talented Avery Sunshine will be there - along with the ever-popular “go-go” style of music brought to you by The Chuck Brown Band.

Sunday’s lineup is jam-packed with star power. Multi-talented American Idol winner Fantasia leads off the lineup - along with Babyface - just off his Super Bowl performance. Festival favorite Kenny G will be making a return visit with his award-winning smooth jazz sax. Rounding out the Sunday afternoon concert will be smooth jazz guitarist Peter White.

Tickets to the 53rd Annual Hampton Jazz Festival are priced at $100, $90, $85, and $75 per ticket - per performance, plus applicable fees. Tickets will go on sale this Saturday, February 25 at 10 AM online at Ticketmaster.com and at the Hampton Coliseum Box Office.
