The Jazz Festival With "SOUL!"
F
eaturing Nearly 30 National Jazz And Soul Artists OTWO Big Stages.... 

Don't miss the Black Sense Entertainment  Annual Capital Jazz Fest Weekend Getaway!!

The place where Cool Jazz & Soul Music collide.

Capital Jazz celebrates 29 years of bringing music lovers from around the country to Columbia, MD for a weekend of fun, Cool Jazz and R&B with a ton of head-turning performers. This multi-stage outdoor music festival is more than just a concert - It's An Event! It's a place to eat, drink, shop, mingle, relax, soak in the rays and of course, hear some of the coolest music LIVE! In-between musical sets, you can enjoy fine arts and crafts at the Festival Marketplace, culinary treats by the on-site food vendors, plus workshops and meet & greets with your favorite artists. 

Black Sense has been a supporter of this event over the last 10 years and every year it gets better and better. We also add our own twist to this great weekend with our exclusive all-white affair featuring one of NY's hottest DJ's - MASAI and LIVE music from the hottest bands in the DMV area. 

Performers

Capital Jazz always brings the best performers to the stage. Although the line-up is released in the early spring you can rest assure it will be a good one. Some of the past performers have been Marcus Miller, Boney James, Brian Culbertson, Avery Sunshine, Kem, Pieces of a Dream, The Whispers, Charlie Wilson, Gregory Porter, Fantasia, Gerald Albright, Anita Baker, Damien Escobar, Ledisi & New Edition just to name a few. 

There is no better way to start your summer! Book with us early because space fills up quickly!
