Festival Big Band, featuring Kim Nalley

Saturday, July 23, 7:30 PM PDT

$15 – $35

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, “Kim Nalley is a vocal powerhouse with pipes to burn and works the stage like she means it.” Put her in front of the seasoned Festival Big Band musicians and you have an evening of red-hot jazz, steamy blues, and sexy swing.

This concert may be attended either in person, or virtually via livestream. When your ticket order includes a livestream ticket, your confirmation email contains a link that opens a browser-based player. For large-screen viewing, access the email via your smart TV’s web browser. “Casting” your device’s screen to a TV may also be an option.

For 2022, the Festival’s main stage is again temporarily transplanted from our signature Tent Concert Hall in Mendocino Headlands State Park to the beautiful, iconic and historic 1938 Cotton Auditorium in nearby Fort Bragg. We’re pleased to also welcome the return of more intimate concerts in Preston Hall, our smaller Mendocino venue. While we’d hoped to be back in the Tent Concert Hall this year, the combination of pandemic-related disruptions in the availability of vital resources (such as labor) and lingering uncertainty about public health conditions this summer would have made that an unacceptably risky proposition. Meanwhile, work is under way toward our 2023 return to our home since 1985, the Tent Concert Hall on the Mendocino Headlands.

Proof of completed COVID-19 vaccination, including at least one booster, is required, and masks must be properly worn at all times while on event premises. Though it might exceed official requirements, this policy is based on current conditions and the results of our most recent audience survey.
