There are plenty of noteworthy headlines to kick off the week…

Mindi Abair will celebrate the release of her new album Wild Heart on Friday, May 30, at the Back Bay Amphitheater to launch the Newport Beach Jazz Festival. Performing with Mindi will be Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Booker T. Jones, along with fan favorite and former top 3 American Idol contestant Elliot Yamin. Mindi Abair is no stranger to Orange County audiences; earlier this month she joined Gregg Allman during his set of day 1 at Doheny Blues Fest, and then turned around and joined Keb' Mo' at his set on day 2 of the Dana Point festival. All attendees will enjoy a hosted reception before this intimate show and 2 complimentary drinks, so don't miss out on the party. Tickets are available at www.festivals.hyattconcerts.com
