In five weeks, Idyllwild will be pulsating. The 2011 Jazz in Pines, the 18th jazz fest, will open with the Patrons’ Dinner, Friday night, Aug. 26. This dinner will be unlike any other Patrons’ Dinner imagined or served in Idyllwild.

Chris Maxson is creating a feast of senses to celebrate and honor the Idyllwild Arts Academy. Some tickets, ranging from $250 per person to $500, if you wish to dine with jazz musician Jeff Hamilton or jazz maven Bubba Jackson, are still available. More details about this lavish and exquisite event will be in the July 28 issue.

Saturday’s highlight will be the return of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to Idyllwild. Last here in 2006, this kinetic and exhilarating group will be on the Holmes Amphitheatre stage, and undoubtedly also marching through the audience Saturday afternoon.
