Acerca del evento

Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA) is pleased to present a special one-night-only event – Jazz Jam – on Friday, June 28th at 7:30pm at the Newport Performing Arts Center.

Featuring powerhouse vocalist Halie Loren, Oregon Coast Jazz Party’s own music director, Ken Peplowski, and grammy award-nominated guitarist Diego Figueiredo, the event promises to be a night to remember. More than a mere concert, the festivities will include music, mingling, whisky tasting, delicious hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, a silent auction, and a live auction hosted by Rep. David Gomberg. Doors open at 6:00pm, the concert begins at 7:30pm, and all proceeds benefit the upcoming annual Oregon Coast Jazz Party – celebrating 20 years in 2024.

Peplowski has performed with artists such as Benny Goodman, Mel Torme, Rosemary Clooney, and even Madonna, and has headlined at venues across the country, including the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, the Blue Note, and Dizzy’s Club. Named one of the greatest guitarists in the world, Diego Figueiredo – who was a fan favorite at last year’s Oregon Coast Jazz Party – has collaborated and performed with names like Gilberto Gil, João Bosco, Roberto Menescal, Toquinho,  Janis Siegel, Stanley Jordan,  Joao Donato, Larry Coryell, Ken Peplowski, Lewis Nash, John Clayton, Cyrille Aimée, Jeff Hamilton, Terell Stafford, Wycliffe Gordon, Bill Cunliffe, Dick Hyman, and many others. Oregon-based multi-lingual singer/songwriter Halie Loren, who is certainly no stranger to Newport audiences, has released multiple albums, garnering several national and international awards as well as significant critical and chart success along the way, with her albums consistently charting at #1 in Billboard/Japan Jazz Charts, iTunes (Canada and Japan) and Amazon Music.

“We’re thrilled and honored to welcome back three of the Coast’s favorite Jazz musicians,” said Jason Holland, Executive Director of OCCA. “I’m excited for fans to enjoy the festivities. Not just the incredible music on stage, but also the fun we’ve got planned before the performance.”

The silent and live auction access alone will be well worth the price of admission, with original paintings and other artwork up for grabs, dining at Thai Elephant, Cafe Stephanie, Fishtails Cafe, Newport Steak and Seafood, and Asiatico Sushi, stays at Embarcadero Resort, Chinook Winds Casino Resort, and the Newport Belle, and many other local gifts and services, including massage, theatre tickets, oil change, sweets, and much more.

Tickets are $40 each when purchased in person at the Newport Performing Arts Center box office (777 W Olive Street) or by phone (541-265-2787). The box office is open Tuesday-Friday from 10am-5pm. Online ticketing is also available (additional fee applies). To learn more or reserve your seat, visit www.coastarts.org/events/jazz-jam
