This year, guests sway to the beats of some of the greats – one of the most recognizable female saxophonists in the world, Mindi Abair, who will be joined by blues/jazz guitar legend, Jeff Golub; and Grammy award-winning singer/guitarist and songwriter David Pack (from the hit–making group, Ambrosia), to create one of the this year’s most fun and dynamic tours hitting the road.

The festivities begin with the Blues Pool Party at the Riviera Palm Springs Main Pool and Bikini Bar, starring Kal David and The Real Deal, featuring Miss Lauri Bono and Jeff Golub. This dynamic night of jazz starts at 7 pm, costs $25/person and is complimentary to registered Riviera guests. Continuing the celebration, guests swing over to the after party at Sidebar Lounge with entertainment by David and Devine starting at 9 pm.

For those who just can’t get enough of this swanky event, they can bebop to the jazz concert on Saturday, May 5, at 8 pm, in the Riviera Grand Ballroom, starring Mindi Abair, Jeff Golub and David Pack. Attendees boogie to the electric mix of musical styles and talents, from Mindi’s funky jazz-meets-pop and Jeff Golub’s soulful, guitar-solo-drenched blues, to David Pack’s unmistakable hits. VIP reserved tables are available for $65/person and $45 general admission, followed by an after party at Sidebar Lounge with entertainment at 9 p.m. by David and Devine.
