The Betsy Hotel presents the longest (continuously) running jazz program in the Miami region – and hosts a festival held during National Jazz Appreciation Month (April) that celebrates historic Overtown. Many jazz greats — such as Lena Horne, Count Basie and Nat King Cole — performed in hotels on Miami Beach yet were required to sleep in Overtown due to discriminatory segregation laws. By the time desegregation began in the mid 1960s highways were constructed through Overtown which decimated its vibrant musical scene. The Betsy’s commitment to Jazz as a quintessential American artform honors Overtown’s jazz legacy and forges new positive connections through music between Miami Beach and Overtown.
