Who's feelin' Jazzy?
We at New Times certainly got a tingle in our booty. So do Erykah Badu, Run-D.M.C.'s Joseph “Run” Simmons, and Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels, R. Kelly, Toni Braxton, Maxwell, Sheila E, D.L. Hughley, Rickey Smiley, and even Celine Dion duet partner Peabo Bryson of “Beauty and the Beast” fame.
Why? Because the City of Miami Gardens just dropped the set times for another edition of its annual homegrown 'n' sexy festival, Jazz in the Gardens, at Sun Life Stadium.
It will be the second time that Ms. Badu headlines the two-day getdown. (She brought that Baduizm to the Gardens in 2009 too.) But Run-D.M.C., R. Kelly, Toni Braxton, and Maxwell have never gone Jazzin', slow jammin', bumpin' 'n' grindin' where the Dolphins play.
Check out Jazz in the Gardens 2015's set times.
