For one night only, the charming town of Ascona will turn into a metropolis of live music.
When you walk along the plaza by the lake or skip from one alley to another, there will be vibes of Chicago, Nashville or New Orleans in the air.
More than two dozen acts are expected to perform on various stages and street corners in Ascona. There will be Blues, Brass, Brazilian Samba, Dixieland, Funk, Gospel, Jazz, Pop, Swing and Vocal.
For instance, take Romina a.k.a. Charlie Roe, a super talented Swiss singer and songwriter who will perform by the marina. Or Brazzini, a Brass band that will wander the streets – “live and unplugged.”
Not to be confused with Jazz Ascona, the ten day festival in June, Ascona Jazz Night is a unique opportunity to experience this town from a new angle. We expect a relaxed setting and are hoping for a warm night!
What better place to stay than the Jazz Hotel Ascona?
We have booked our room at the newly renovated Jazz Hotel Ascona, located just a few steps from the main action. The interior reflects the name of the hotel as there are music posters all over the place! If we find any time to sleep at all, we will surely dream to the tunes of Miles, Duke and Louis…
