The Experience

Presented in partnership with Taylor Farms and in association with the Monterey Jazz Festival, Jazz at the Ranch boasts an incredible lineup of world-class performers spanning various genres.

Tickets include a pre-performance happy hour with a delectable menu of hor d’oeuvres prepared by Monterey chefs and served by culinary students. Guests can enjoy their appetizers with fine local wine and beer on the beautiful deck of Rancho Cielo’s Drummond Culinary Academy. Concerts are held at the Sally Hughes Church Amphitheater, where the sightlines across the Salinas Valley provide a stunning backdrop to watch the sunset.

Our 2023 lineup featured 11-time Grammy Award winner and former lead vocalist Tony Lindsay, acclaimed jazz guitarist Bruce Forman & his cowboy jazz and western bebop band Cow Bop, Monterey Jazz Festival Regional All-Star Band & Vocal Ensemble, Youth Orchestra Salinas (YOSAL), Jamaican jazz artist and Grammy Award nominee Monty Alexander and jazz/cabaret singer Paula West.
