Weekend Happening: Quiet Festival, Street Eats & All That Jazz at Exit 0
Meet Your Music at the Exit 0 International Jazz Festival in Cape May this Veterans Day Weekend. In just it’s second year, Exit 0 Jazz has become one of the most respected music festivals in the world.
During the three day Fest weekend, over 100 international touring musicians will perform in Festival events held in Cape May Convention Hall and Festival club venues. The atmosphere is that of a European festival, with fest goers strolling from venue to venue sampling the many styles of music from jazz, soul, reggae, blues, and R&B.
Then there’s the “Quiet Festival“, where else but…Ocean City, featuring an opening ceremony where the renowned Yawn Along Ensemble will yawn to the tune of Beautiful Dreamer accompanied by the World’s Only Wind Chimes Band, maple pods will be tossed into the air and twirl down to earth like tiny helicopters, bubbles will rise into the blue, paper airplanes will sail, there will be leaf squeezing, pin dropping and much more. Read more in Mark Soifer’s typically hilarious press release.
