May 29, 2014 - PRLog -- Cotati, Calif. (May 29, 2014) — In an era when free anything has become a “vanishing breed,” the 34th Annual Cotati Jazz Festival presents a full day of free entertainment in a handful of venues around the Cotati Hub on Fathers Day, June 15 from 12 – 5 pm. The event is produced by the Cotati Chamber of Commerce, and features a variety of local jazz acts as well as food, wine and beer vendors. Sponsors include KJZY Smooth 93.7 and Lagunitas Brewing Company.

“The event takes place all over downtown Cotati but is centered in La Plaza Park,” said festival coordinator André Morrow. “Bring a blanket or lawn chair and kick back in the park listening to some of the best musicians in Sonoma County.”

Venues and Bands

The bandstand in La Plaza Park features three acts:

• The Matt Silva Project (funky jazz quartet with a blues and soul base) at 12:00 pm

• Planet B (septet performing original compositions with influences of rock, swing, reggae, calypso and bossa nova) at 1:40 pm

• Phoney Abalone (New Orleans-style funk quintet with other influences) at 3:20 pm

The 8 Ball Tavern presents the Hellhounds, a popular classic and original blues band, from 1 – 4 pm.

The Redwood Café showcases Gold Coast Jazz, a Dixieland and swing sextet, from 4 – 9 pm.

The Cotati Yacht Club and Friar Tucks will also have live jazz.
