Coachman Park’s annual Clearwater Jazz Holiday gets a lot of shine, but another jazz festival is happening this weekend less than five miles away. Jason Marsalis (who headlines a non-Suncoast Jazz Festival show in St. Pete on Thursday) is the headliner for this multi-day party, which includes performances from Tom Hook and the Terrier Brothers, The Warehouse Waifs as well as a host of artists playing everything from traditional jazz, to gospel, big band, zydeco, blues and more. Every performance (including some including John Lamb, pictured) is indoors, to boot.

Suncoast Jazz Festival. Fri.-Sun. Nov. 22-Nov. 24. $50 & up. Sheraton Sand Key Resort, Clearwater.
