Jazz Festival 2014

Hey everyone.
So over the weekend my best friend (Shay) and I went to a huge jazz festival near our area and it was amazing. The festival not only had jazz artists but rhythm & blues, gospel, and latin artists.  There were over 20 performers so I'll just name a few: Boz Scaggs, Cassandra Wilson, Boney James, Sean Jones, Babyface, Regina Carter, Mary-Mary, Water Seed, Plunky & Oneness, Cameo, Dianne Reeves, Eric Benet, and more!  *WARNING! This post gets extremely sloppy towards the end. Some pictures and videos are too spaced out and in weird areas. The words I typed out are on the side of videos... I don't know how to fix it and I've been trying to figure it out for over 2 hours now! It's so frustrating. If you know how to fix this please let me know! My apologies, I hope yall enjoy the post anyway!)

This park is HUGE! We were only on one side of it too.
 
 This castle looking house on the property. It was so pretty.

First arriving.
 
 People everywhere!


There were also vendors selling their paintings, clothing, and jewelry.






The festival also had food stands, wine tastings, and chef demonstrations.



They also had BMW's everywhere!!



I would have worn something cuter if I knew it wasn't going to rain. I'm just glad it didn't!!

 
Water Seed performing. They were amazing! 
(We were kind of early but later the crowds got bigger.)


So after Water Seed we walked around, got some food, listened to other performers and then ran back to stage 3 for Eric Benet's performance. We listened to him from outside the stage area and watched him on the big screen so we could run and be the first ones at his meet and greet. (it worked!)We were one of the first few people in line.

My picture came out blurry :(
 

 Babyface time!!
He sung his own songs plus the ones he's written for other people.

We had such a great time. Have you ever been to a music festival before?
