Rock & Roll and Fireworks – Clearwater Jazz Holiday Day 3


The moment Sheryl Crow hit the stage, everyone in the audience stood up.  We just don’t get big stars like this at Clearwater Jazz Holiday every year.  When we do, the audience can fill Coachman Park, with crowds of around 8,000 people.  Most of these people are out on the lawn, in general admission, like me.  From out here, the big stars can look small, but we can still see it all from a gigantic screen directly above the musicians’ heads.

It was hit after hit as Crow and her band played through their set, ending with an extended live version of Every Day is a Winding Road, complete with drum and bass solos.  The crowd screamed for more, and Crow returned to the stage for an encore, performing a cover of Led Zeppelin’s Rock & Roll.  As the stage lights went down, the fireworks went off, bringing Day 3 of Clearwater Jazz Holiday to its conclusion.

Today is Day 4 of Clearwater Jazz Holiday, but my Jazz Holiday ended with last night’s fireworks display.  Today I hope to get in on some Stone Crab action at the Olde Bay Cafe’s Craft Beer and Crab Festival in Dunedin, FL.
