The 21st Annual Beaches International Jazz Festival (http://www.beachesjazz.com) is one of the largest jazz festivals in North America with about a million visitors in attendance.
Featured for the first time at this festival - and the cause of much dancing on the street, as noted by a local newspaper - the Philips Westin Orchestra (http://www.philipswestin.com) was clearly regarded by many musicians and audience members as the best of the Top 3 big bands at the event.
Performing artists from Canada, the United Kingdom, USA, South America, Europe, Japan and Asia were showcased by the upscale boutique big band managed under the Sheraton Cadwell Group (http://www.sheratoncadwell.com/presskit.html).
Vocal stylists presented by the Philips Westin Orchestra at the 3-day StreetFest include Elisa Gold (http://www.elisagold.com), Woodney Pierre, Rick Levine (http://www.thericklevineband.com), Lisa Levy (http://www.lisalevy.ca) and KALYA (http://www.kalya.ca).
