Earlier this year 7 Mile House started an annual 7 Mile House Jazz Fest headlined by Ray Obiedo, with host KCSM Jazz 91 DJ Alisa Clancy and featuring 11 of the Bay Area’s top jazz bands. It also marked the first annual “7 Mile House Jazz Appreciation Awards” given to Mario Guarneri (Outstanding Bay Area Jazz Presenter), Andrew Gilbert (Outstanding Bay Area Jazz Promoter), and Outstanding Bay Area Jazz Artist (Vince Lateano). Next year’s Jazz Fest is on May 4, 2019, kicking off the year’s Bay Area Jazz Season.
