The lucky 7th year of the two-day Jazz in the Gardens music festival returns to Miami Gardens with an incredible line-up sure to put the audience at Sun Life Stadium on their feet on March 17 and 18, 2012.  Beginning Saturday, March 17, 2012, “Jazz in the Gardens” attendees will be treated to exhilarating performances by Jill Scott, Kem, Ledisi, Doug E Fresh and Ramsey Lewis. The Sunday, March 18, 2012 line up will feature the incomparable voices of Mary J Blige, Patti LaBelle and Nicole Henry as well as the smooth instrumental sounds of Kenny G and Kevin Eubanks.
“Jazz in the Gardens” owes its success to a simple formula: a star-studded line-up, great food, extraordinarily affordable ticket prices and amazing weather.

The 2011 festival attracted over 48,000 music lovers, from the Carribean, the United States and all over Florida, to the beautiful City of Miami Gardens
“Just like all Jazz in the Gardens fans, I anxiously wait to hear who is performing and every year turns out to be a better line-up than the last! The 2012 line-up is absolutely incredible and I look forward to all the fans from around the nation joining us again. This signature Miami Gardens event brings added value to the City and to South Florida in general. I am proud of this City; in the eight years since incorporation, Miami Gardens has seen a steady stream of positive changes, improvements and additions like Jazz in the Gardens, which is more than a concert, it is an opportunity and experience that people want to enjoy year after year,” says Mayor Shirley Gibson.
The 2011 “Jazz in the Gardens” featured performances from legendary artists including Ms. Lauryn Hill, Charlie Wilson, Al Jarreau, Jazmine Sullivan, Gladys Knight, The Isley Brothers, EnVogue, Lalah Hathaway, Branford Marsalis and former New Edition members Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant.
