Get Your Jazz On - Alfond Inn by BeBest Events

Get Your Jazz On - Alfond Inn by BeBest Events


The French term bourgeoisie refers to a certain cultural and affluent stratum of class that was symbolic of a refined group of individuals. As you step into the notoriously luxurious Alfond Inn in Winter Park, a sense of extravagance and poise is exuded as the prism-ceiling piece reflects on an elegant lobby.


There is clearly no better choice of venue for the popular Get Your Jazz On concert series. The often sold out event is held a couple of times a year at the Alfond Inn, a beautiful boutique hotel owned by Rollins College in Winter Park, and proceeds from these events help fund programs that award scholarships for students at the college. This year’s spring concert welcomed performer Will Adrian and his band, who serenated into the night with contemporary jazz tunes that provided the perfect musical background for a relaxing night for guests to enjoy libations, cigars, food and more.


The event offered two ticket types- a general admission and VIP tickets. Both tickets included unlimited wine, beer, cocktails and food selections as well as complimentary valet parking (oh so handy on this side of town). The VIP tickets included seating in front of the performance stage as well as a designated server for the guests.

For those who were unable to secure the limited VIP tickets, there was plenty of small standing tables, steps and other sectionals where guests could sit and stand comfortably during the affair. For the night’s food selections, executive Chef Jason served his award winning roasted pig, as well as a delectable roasted chicken paired with mashed potatoes and a garden salad. Vegetarian options were available as well, and Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen served their decadent ceviche.

Looking out amongst the crowd, guests were dressed in simple but casually elegant garments from beautiful long dresses for women, to crisp blazers and suits for men.

As the sun set on the beautiful lawns of the Alfond Inn, and the band played out to Nadya Burnos dulcet vocals, I joined the crowd and concurred in the sentiment that these concerts are a must for those who love music, food and great company.
