Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival celebrates 26 years

    Thousands of jazz lovers flocked to Delaware’s beaches for the 26th annual Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival.

    Venues like the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center and the Rusty Rudder were sold out as people turned out to see and hear their favorite performers like Grammy winners Peabo Bryson, Al Jarreau, Boney James, Gerald Albright, Brian Simpson, Steve Cole and a street performance by the Fralinger String Band from Philadelphia.

    Festival organizers have already started the countown clock for next year’s four-day event on the festival’s website. Only 359 days and counting left.
