Get ready for the grandest musicians in Jazz!
Season 1 of the epic one-day event will be held monthly starting October 2017 and will end in April 2018, with a two-day grand finale festival!
Chillout Productions is proud to present the return of the iconic Jazz Garden!
The first of the seven-episode season 1 will start on Friday, 20th of October 2017, at Habtoor Grand Resort – Dubai Marina, with three exceptional shows for the entire night.
The whole series is a free admission event with online registration.
The featured performances of Episode 1 include the British veteran Albie Donnelly’s Supercharge.
Albie is best known for his fiery saxophone playing which eventually made him one of the biggest names in continental Rhythm ‘n’ Blues.
Together with Europe’s finest rhythm and blues band Supercharge, they will be bringing along a blend of R&B and funk, plus their wild onstage show that made them a sensation on the British 70’s live club scene.
Also joining the legendary band is the American award-winning indie music artist – Catie Waters.
Her career might still be young, yet she has already garnered great success. The singer-songwriter has a penchant for R&B, soul, jazz and funk – which she infuses with a modern touch that brings a unique vocal, poetic, and musical style.
Opening for this exhilarating night is none other than the highly talented 5-piece band – Lady J & The Royal Vagabonds.
This modern band with an old soul will take you on a musical ride as they mix their original tunes with traditional blues, rock and pop hits.
You’ll hear classics you know and love, recent chart-toppers with a bluesy twist, and a few musical surprises guaranteed to come together for a foot-stomping good time.
“After an extremely well-received pilot episode earlier this year, Jazz Garden fans once again proved their unmatched loyalty to the event.
With this, we bring you the first season of the series where you can expect the highest caliber shows and an ultimate experience not to be missed,” said Anthony Younes, Founder and CEO of Chillout Productions.
The rest of the episodes will witness more world-class artists such as Lin Rountree, Beth Griffith, Sharrie Williams, JoAnna Lee, Nine Below Zero, Julian Vaughn, Gisele Jackson & Raphael Wressnig’s Soul Gift, Oli Silk, Annika Chambers, Nick Colionne, Earl Thomas, Jonathan Fritzen, Mississippi Heat, Sax Gordon, Lucine Fyelon, Wee Willie Walker, and Alex Schultz, with further acts to be confirmed soon.
Season 1 of the epic one-day multi events will be held monthly starting October 2017 and will end in April 2018, with a two-day grand finale festival.

ABOUT THE JAZZ GARDEN:
The much-loved Jazz Garden was initially launched in 2008 as a seven-day sub-event of the Dubai Jazz Festival. Chillout Productions partnered with numerous embassies and cultural authorities in the UAE to bring only the best of jazz and blues from their countries to Dubai.
It attracted hundreds of mainstream jazz and blues artists, as well as thousands of fans.
Despite being a niche genre, the organizers succeeded in making the free-admission outdoor event popular throughout the region.
The last edition of the Jazz Garden was held during the massive Dubai Jazz Festival 2014 hosted in Dubai Festival City.
For seven consecutive nights, it drew a daily crowd of 4,000, becoming UAE’s biggest free attraction ever.
Subsequently, the festival returned to it’s original home in Dubai Media City.
After much consideration, the organizers made the difficult decision to place the Jazz Garden on a brief hiatus due to scheduling conflicts with other events.
After three long years of non-stop requests to bring back the most memorable and exceedingly enjoyable event, the organizers rebranded and relaunched the Jazz Garden as a stand-alone multiple events.
Featuring internationally acclaimed jazz and blues acts, the long-awaited event returned with a bang!
The pilot episode took place last 28th of April 2017 at Habtoor Grand Resort – Dubai Marina, with a great turn out of more than 4,000 attendees.
