(Las Vegas) Michael Schivo Presents, celebrating 55 years as Nevada's premier Pop, Rock and Jazz concert promoter, has again teamed up with Jammin 1057 AND POWER 88 IN LAS VEGAS to co-sponsor the 30th Annual Las Vegas City of Lights Jazz & R&B Festival, Saturday, April 23rd and Sunday April 24th 2020. By popular demand the Festival will remain at its traditional location at Government Amphitheater. Government Amphitheater according to producer Michael Schivo “has superior sightlines and a sound system that will deliver the jazz attendee the great experience they deserve. Also parking is free and improved and is easily accessible to the venue. As well as there are 2 new restroom areas and increased space for the Vendor Village.” Government Amphitheater is located close to Downtown Las Vegas and closer to the Las Vegas Strip than past festivals for convenience when staying in a hotel. The new Festival sight has a much more of a professional feeling and intimate synergy revered by the festival patrons. The site also has many shade trees.

The Jazz and R&B Festival is Saturday April 23rd from 1.00 pm to 9:00 pm. and Sunday April 24th from 2.00pm to 10.00 pm has GRAMMY AWARD WINNERS AND NOMINEES WRITTEN ALL OVER IT! The Festival this year is charged with performers that appeal to a slightly younger demo to please patrons from all over the USA, Japan and Europe and still continues to thrill all ages. We continue to be a branded part of live music in Las Vegas.

As usual, the Jazz Festival has been booked with handpicked national and Grammy Award recognized musicians to entertain throughout the day and night. Jazz and R&B artists performing on Saturday April 23rdth and Sunday April 24th at Government Amphitheater will include the R&B vocalist Will Downing, Lalah Hathaway, After 7, Eric Benet, Leela James, Average White Band, Kenny Lattimore, Eric Roberson, Mike Phillips, Elan Trotman, Adam Hawley and Marcus Johnson.

These artists performing each night are the finest collection of acts we have ever had at the 30 year old festival ” states award winning event producer Michael Schivo, celebrating 54 years as Nevada longest running event producer.

Quote Schivo: "Last year's Festival was an extreme party filled with the fun and groove that it takes to be crowned "The biggest and liveliest Jazz and R&B party festival in the West" Last years Festival sold outway in advance and so we returned back to a 2 day format for the Festival. We strongly urge patrons to buy their selected ticket well in advance as tickets as there a high demand once again Schivo adds "The Las Vegas City of Lights Jazz and R&B Festival continues to spiral itself into a very special light, and as our Festival continues to gain momentum, it now ranks with the likes of all first-rate European and big-city-USA spring and summer Music Festivals, perhaps more so because Las Vegas is truly a one-of-a-kind city."
