"ResortQuest is proud to continue our support of the Seabreeze Jazz Festival and the Outdoor Amphitheater at Gulf Place is the perfect venue for this event" stated Lino Maldonado, Vice President of ResortQuest. "It has been amazing to watch the phenomenal growth of this event. This event started out with only a handful of spectators and has grown into one of the most popular Jazz Festivals in the United States with thousands of attendees each year. I feel this can be attributed to a combination of things including great performers, award winning beaches and our outstanding accommodations and service".
