About Us

Eddie&Peggy500What is the TRUE BLUE JAZZ FESTIVAL?

TRUE BLUE JAZZ Inc. (TBJAZZ), is an Independent Jazz Festival. We are a recognized 501c3. Conceived and produced by Eddie Sherman and Peggy Raley, 2019 celebrates our seventh year honoring America’s most original Art Form….JAZZ.

TRUE BLUE JAZZ 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 the Blues and 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 2019?

Once again in 2019, we return to our Boardwalk Plaza Hotel Showroom and The Rehoboth Beach Firehouse as our Primary Venues.  Because you love it…TBJAZZ will Host The Afternoon Jazz Jam at The Ave Inn from 430p – 830p on Thursday through Saturday, October 17 , 18 & 19.  And once again….TBJazz will return to Bethany Blues for a Locals Night Favorite….our TRUE BLUE YOUTH JAZZ APPRECIATION NIGHT!
