MIAMI, FL, October 25, 2020 The Miami Smooth Jazz Festival is following the guidelines of health experts and Miami Dade County Officials by not holding a large gathering this fall. We will not take any risks that would endanger the health of music fans, artists, and our staff. We are grateful to the thousands of music fans who support our efforts and therefore we will keep the music playing this fall. We are looking forward to you joining us for the free Virtual Miami Smooth Jazz Festival 2020 on Saturday, November 7th at 7PM ET at


Organizer Cedric Allen says, “As we have seen so many other music festivals fall victim to the pandemic, we wanted to keep music fans safe but not allow the state of affairs to deny you the music you so richly deserve.” Allen added, “While it’s disheartening that we couldn’t be with you in person, we had to figure out a way to bring you the sound of music again this year, that’s why we decided to give you the Virtual Miami Smooth Jazz Festival.”


As with our first festival, this year the Virtual Miami Smooth Jazz festival 2020 will lead up to the Veterans Day holiday. We again will honor our nations’ veterans for their sacrifice to our nation. This year, we are also saluting first responders everywhere, as they are on the front lines fighting to keep others safe during the pandemic. We say thank you to our Heroic Veterans and our Front-line Heroes.


We are pleased to have as our host for the Virtual Miami Smooth Jazz Festival, the innovative and contemporary smooth jazz saxophonist, Marion Meadows. “The move to the virtual allows the Miami Smooth Jazz Festival to give you the music that binds us all so beautifully,” says Meadows. He adds, “I look forward to you joining us for an amazing evening of the healing sound of music, artist interviews, and our expressions of love for you during this pandemic.”


While Covid-19 has a changed a lot. It will not stop the Miami Smooth Jazz Festival from sharing the universal sound of music. We will keep the music playing.
