About Us

Eddie&Peggy500What is the TRUE BLUE JAZZ SERIES?

TRUE BLUE JAZZ Inc. (TBJAZZ), is an Independent Jazz Series. We are a recognized 501c3. Conceived and produced by Eddie Sherman and Peggy Raley, 2017 celebrates our fifth year honoring America’s most original Art Form….JAZZ.

TRUE BLUE JAZZ (not affiliated with Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival), is focused on “Straight Ahead” or “Mainstream” Jazz, largely featuring songs of the Great American Standards Songbook from 1900 to present day. From the birth of Dixieland Jazz to the popular tunes that became the soundtrack of America, TBJAZZ features innovative interpretation and musical improvisation of these songs from American stage plays, radio, television, and feature films from across this time period.

Where will TBJAZZ happen in 2017?

Downtown Rehoboth Beach Delaware….of course! Once again in 2017, we return to Clear Space Theatre and The Rehoboth Beach Bandstand as our primary venues. And…back by popular demand…TBJAZZ will Host “Late Day Jazz Jamz” at a Selected Venue (to be announced). A full list of Artists, Venues, and Performance dates and times will be available on the Events Page as our schedule comes together! Stay tuned & check in often!
