Divas World is pleased to announce the final performance in the month-long Mainely Music Series: A Night of Jazz with Delfeayo Marsalis, taking place on Friday, July 29 at 8:00 p.m. at the Opera House at Boothbay Harbor.  The evening will feature performances by 2011 Jazz Master Award recipient and acclaimed jazz trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis, along with a extraordinary line-up of guest artists.

A Night of Jazz is appropriately themed “New Orleans”, and will bring a bit of the Crescent City to Boothbay Harbor.  The evening will include a charismatic line-up of jazz musicians, with a wide-ranging mix of instruments and styles – from the clarinet to the soprano sax, and from the trumpet to the trombone.  In a tribute to the celebrated talents of Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet, this evening of Jazz will focus on some of the legendary music that fueled the great battles between these two renowned performers and put New Orleans on the map as the Birthplace of Jazz.

Special guests and featured performers during A Night of Jazz  include:  Dr. Michael White, Clarinet; Leon “Kid Chocolate” Brown, Trumpet; Mark Gross, Saxophone; and, of course, Delfeayo Marsalis, Trombone.

A Night of Jazz will take place at The Opera House at Boothbay Harbor, and 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Opera House.
