“This festival shows once again that the disabled community has leaders who can inspire and motivate people from all walks of life. I’m deeply moved by that”, says Marcus Roberts.
Power Access, Inc. celebrates the abilities of musicians with disabilities by presenting the annual South Beach Jazz Festival. The festival uses the rich legacy of jazz to expand our community’s perspective on individuals with unique abilities.
The South Beach Jazz Festival takes place in multiple venues throughout South Beach over three days in January. The mission of disability awareness is projected through a festival that takes pride in presenting world-renowned musicians who have disabilities from the entire spectrum of jazz including traditional, contemporary, and Latin American cutting edge acts. Many of the performances are free and open to the public and outdoors. The sounds of Jazz enliven the city all weekend long and draw residents and tourists to listen and learn through the talent of persons with disabilities.
