Steven Bensusan, President of Blue Note Entertainment Group: “Blue Note is actively looking for outdoor space in New York City and beyond. We have not yet found the right opportunity to fit our needs locally making the partnership with North Beach Bandshell in Miami Beach, who have created a very safe environment for socially distanced shows, the perfect moment for Blue Note Jazz Clubs to continue presenting live music.”

James Quinlan, Director of Rhythm Foundation: “The Blue Note Jazz Club pop up in Miami Beach marks a significant milestone in our growth at the North Beach Bandshell. We are honored to welcome their 40 years of experience with the leading jazz artists of our generation.”
