The weather was perfect, the crowds were strong and the music was superlative. Powered by headliners Sheryl Crow, John Fogerty and The Gipsey Kings, last weekend’s Sonoma Jazz Plus music festival earned an A+ . While the performances reverb into fond memory, monies generated by the festival — through hotel rooms, restaurants, increased business overall – will hopefully work through the local economy to benefit the entire community. Additionally, the festival donates directly to school music programs. All in all, a hard act to follow.
