Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club's Jazz on the Gulf featuring Blue Dice drew a large crowd on Saturday evening.

— Sultry jazz tunes filled the air as the sun set over the gulf on Saturday's "Summer Jazz on the Gulf" event at Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club. The hotel lawn was full and many event-goers took to the beach to enjoy dinner and drinks while the music played in the background.

Saturday marked Naples Beach Hotel's last night of the free concert series. The crowd was treated to music by "Blue Dice", a 9-piece ensemble known for it's sultry, yet funky sound. Visitors traveled from all around the Naples area to enjoy the evening.

Some visitors were sad to see the concert series end, but were happy they did not miss the last concert of the summer. "It was absolutely, beyond any doubt, fabulous," said Alice Batdorff.

The Naples Beach Hotel and Gulf Club is located at 851 Gulf Shore Blvd. North in Naples. Contact the resort at (800) 237-7600 or (239) 261-2222, or visit www.NaplesBeachHotel.com.
