Inland Empire Jazz Festival Charity Weekend Mourns the Loss of the Legendary Isaac Hayes

The Inland Empire Jazz Festival Charity Weekend set to honor Hayes as a living legend for his life-long achievements in music, now becomes a tribute.

Annetta Bryant, Event Director of the Inland Empire Jazz Festival, states that her organization is devastated by the news of the untimely death of Mr. Isaac Hayes.

CUCAMONGA, CA—The legendary Isaac Hayes was scheduled to appear and be honored at the Inland Empire Jazz Festival Charity Weekend as a living legend for his life-long contributions to the entertainment industry. However, his untimely death on Sunday, August 10th changes the planned recognition to a massive tribute to the man, the legend, and his unique role in the history of music. His honors will now be bestowed posthumously.

Isaac Hayes was loved by people of all nations, partially because of his kind generosity which touched even small corners of the world. Few people know, for example, that in 2000 he provided funding to build a job training facility in the small town of Ada, Ghana, to open untold opportunities for the people of this tiny village. They loved him so much they gave him an island. A special place in their world for him to return to over and over again! It is Hayes’ personal connection to people in need that led him to support numerous causes that enriched the human spirit. “This is one reason he was so enthusiastic about the Inland Empire Jazz Festival,” said Bryant. “Unlike similar events, the Inland Empire Jazz Festival helps raise funds for worthy causes throughout the region. Mr. Hayes saw our effort as a resource pipeline for organizations serving the needs of people. I am certain he would want the resource pipeline to flow that much greater in his absence,” said Bryant. “And we will carry the torch forward in a big way this year as a result of his inspiration!” she declared.

The tribute to Mr. Hayes will take place on Sunday, August 24, the last day of the three day music festival. “We invite the surrounding Inland Empire community to join the festival in celebrating the life of Mr. Hayes, who donated his time to make this charity event successful.

Information: Presented by Operation REAPP, in association with SEBA, it is the mission of the Inland Empire Jazz Festival to entertain and expose a diverse audience of Jazz aficionados and young Jazz enthusiasts to the variety and rich heritage of Jazz music while unifying the Inland Empire's diverse population, promoting tourism, and contributing to its community.

Designed to be an enjoyable weekend for the whole family, the Inland Empire Jazz Festival is dedicated to economic development, providing resources to assist community-based organizations, community unification, and education and cultural awareness of jazz music as a traditional form of music. The weekend includes three days of live Jazz, inclusive of local and nationally recognized talents, jazz superstars and legends, as well as participation by area high school and college jazz ensembles in a competition style presentation to showcase the talent and diversity of the young people of the Inland Empire. This exhilarating weekend also includes a Community Day that will be devoted to a special population and a Sunday afternoon cruise of classic and vintage cars accenting Historic Route 66 ending at the Inland Empire Jazz Festival Charity Weekend. The Inland Empire Jazz Festival Charity Weekend garners the spirit and support of residents and business owners in the various Inland Empire communities. With the potential of generating hundreds of thousands of dollars, this festival serves to create opportunities for many to benefit from its efforts to build alliances, educate, and further develop the Inland Empire's robust economy. We incorporate youth each year, by providing opportunity for showcasing their talents via live performance and exposure to the music community and media, as well as the experience of participating in an event with tremendous growth potential. Additionally, we provide the opportunity to include populations of disadvantage youth, seniors and the disabled in this monumental event.

The Inland Empire Jazz Festival Charity Weekend will be held August 22-24, 2008 at the Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park in Ontario, CA. The park is just minutes away from the Ontario Airport and 45-60 minutes from Orange County and Downtown Los Angeles. Tickets for Friday’s Community Day start at $5. General Admission Tickets for Saturday and Sunday start at $35 and up. For more information go to www.iejazz.com or call 877.9.IEJAZZ.
