March 3 & 4 at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet Jazz royalty comes to JAZZIZ Nightlife when the Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet appears on our stage. Jason is the son of pianist and music educator Ellis Marsalis and the youngest sibling of Wynton, Branford and Delfeayo. Together, the four brothers and Ellis comprise New Orleans’ venerable first family of jazz. A renowned drummer and vibraphonist, he has fine tuned his playing in two of the most demanding settings in modern jazz. When not performing with his vibes quartet, as a drummer he collaborates with brothers Delfeayo and Branford, in addition to Marcus Roberts and Ellis Marsalis. He also co-founded the Grammy nominated Latin fusion band Los Hombres Calientes and is a 2011 National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master. Tickets range from $25 to $45. March 11 & 12 at 7:30 p.m. Gino Vannelli Platinum selling, GRAMMY® nominated, singer-songwriter Gino Vannelli and his band return to JAZZIZ Nightlife for two special evenings. Renowned for his sensuous and soaring vocal performances, Gino will be taking the stage with his seven- piece band performing his most memorial hits. A universal attraction, he has been touring the world from Japan to the Ukraine, Italy, Norway, Mexico, Canada, Holland and just completed a new Live DVD concert special recorded in Los Angeles. Since Gino Vannelli’s debut release of Crazy Life, in 1973, he has remained one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary music. He is the recipient of multiple Canadian Juno awards, has been nominated for several Grammy Awards and has sold over 10 million records worldwide, with hits including “I Just Wanna Stop,” Living Inside Myself,” “People Gotta Move,” “The Wheels Of Life” “Black Cars “and many more.

Michael Fagien, JAZZIZ Magazine publisher and founder of JAZZIZ Nightlife considers Vannelli, “One of the most talented singer/songwriter/musicians ever.” Tickets are $60 General Admission, $100 Premium and $150 VIP. March 18 at 7 p.m. & 9 p.m. Kyle Eastwood It has been 15 years since bassist Kyle Eastwood burst onto the jazz scene with his 1998 debut, From There To Here. At that moment in his budding career, the press seemed more preoccupied with his paternal lineage (he’s the son of famed actor-director Clint Eastwood) than his music. Over the course of the four subsequent releases – 2004’s Paris Blue, 2005’s Now, 2009’s Metropolitan and 2011’s Songs from the Chateau – Eastwood built up an impressive body of work while earning respect in musician circles. With his sixth release as a leader, The View From Here on the JazzVillage label, he demonstrates a strong command of both electric and upright basses while expanding into more adventurous territory that is informed as much by jazz as it is by world music. “I’ve always loved music from other countries,” says the Carmel, California native who has resided in Paris for the past eight years. “Living in France, you hear a lot of North African and Middle Eastern music, and you can hear some of those influences on this new recording.” Tickets are $25 for general admission; $45 for premium and $65 for VIP. JAZZIZ Nightlife brings its high-end entertainment experience to Boca Raton with the finest cuisine; wines; dedicated champagne, caviar, cigar and piano bars; plush indoor and outdoor lounges; and South Florida’s best live entertainment. JAZZIZ Nightlife opens weekdays at 4 p.m. offering its enchanting happy hour menu until 7 p.m., weekends at 5 p.m. and stays open until 2 a.m. Covered valet parking is available at its front door.
