"Jazz Weekending" is a noun and a verb... it's the thrill of exhilarating improvisation (musical and lifestyle) in an inspiring location!

This unique jazz festival brings to life a new and exciting way to experience live music, with spontaneous performances in a variety of intimate and inspiring venues, adding the element of surprise, dare we say danger, to every set... You never know what's going to happen next! 

BIG LITTLE VIBES will filter through the romantic, late winter air on the Monterey Peninsula on Valentine's Weekend in Carmel at the stunning QUAIL LODGE RESORT & GOLF CLUB, located on 800 acres between Carmel-by-the-Sea and the rolling hills of Santa Lucia Mountains offering an 18-hole championship golf course, tennis courts, outdoor swimming pool, and cozy fireplaces, transforming into the ideal California jazz experience with open living spaces, high-vaulted, natural wood ceilings, cushioned chairs, exquisite sound, artful lighting with world-class performers who are close enough to touch!

HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE INAUGURAL JAZZ WEEKENDER

"The Jazz Weekender Experience was truly something to behold and it was so much fun being on that adventure with you! To watch all of your ideas unfold in real time was Magic! Lots of people have visions but they remain visions... not only was yours a beautiful sight but you pulled it off and in such a graceful way, you should be extremely proud!  Watching you, Donna & Esther in action is a study that should be required learning at Haas Business School! Your new band name, 'The Heavy Lifters!' Wow!  All of the feedback I have received was 100% positive and as you know that’s where I live, so for the record please count me in for any Weekender endeavors from this point forward! You are the BEST of the BEST Sandy! "  NATHAN E.

"Just wanted to thank you again for having us at the incredible and awesome Jazz Weekender. It really is a great thing and I hope it builds and builds for you. It’s an awesome event!! I’m missing Carmel! It’s got a great vibe out there."

THE DEETS & PARTICULARS : FAQs


QUAIL LODGE & GOLF CLUB is located on the sunny side of Carmel, approximately 5 miles from Carmel-By-The-Sea, just off Carmel Valley Road and 10 miles from Monterey Regional Airport, 80 miles from Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport and about 100 miles from San Francisco International Airport.

Carmel is located on the world famous Monterey Peninsula, home of SmoothJazz.com Global Radio. The Peninsula, as we call it, includes the cities of Monterey, Carmel, Pacific Grove, and Pebble Beach. 

The area is famous for many things, including Cannery Row (a must-see for Steinbeck fans), the Monterey Bay Aquarium and 17-Mile Drive.

We have a never-ending supply of local gastronomic discoveries including cafes, bars, and hipster coffee houses… Your Jazz Weekender support team or the hotel Concierge will be happy to provide you with ideas on where to eat.

2020 Tickets and Passes will be sold through this website and our ticket partner, separately from Quail Lodge Resort accommodations. Quail Lodge has blocked off rooms for the Jazz Weekender and will extend rates and incentives for early book. Tickets and Rooms are scheduled to go on sale in August, 2019.

Hosted by world-renowned bassist and founding member of the jazz super group Fourplay, Nathan East (one of the most recorded bass players in music, on over 2,000 recordings), who will also serve as Musical Director of the Jazz Weekender and together with his Band of Brothers will be curating seamless sets of music with Special Guests throughout the weekend. 

The Weekender rolls out this year on Thursday, February 13, 2020, with a private, VIP reception at a soon to be revealed venue with Host Nathan East and special guests!

We're also brewing up a daily Happy Hour Hang with Chart topping, Canadian bassist BRENDAN ROTHWELL in the Quail Lounge with special guests and drink specials.

Following the nightly concerts, the World's Most Dangerous After Party returns the hit making bad boys from Budapest, PEET PROJECT and special guests performing in Quail’s Covey for Weekender Late Nights.
