Eleuthera All That Jazz 2018

A magical jazz long weekend on the beautiful 
out-island of Eleuthera, Bahamas.

Governor’s Harbour
April 11th-15th 2018

Eleuthera is known for its sweeping fields of pineapple, along with miles of coastline offering some of the most spetacular white and pink sand beaches, along with numerous secluded sandy coves. 

Eleuthera is also home to the The Glass Window - one of the few places on earth where you can compare the rich blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean on one side of the road and the calm turquoise-green waters of the Exuma Sound (Caribbean Sea) on the other side, separated by a strip of rock just 30 feet widePhoto Credit

Each year Eleuthera All That Jazz promotes The Islands of the Bahamas, Bahamian music, along with providing a showcase for Bahamian musicians to make contact with the musicians in the international music scene.
