About Us

ZnL Productions (formerly Steglich Ross and Associates) is a joint venture between to long time friends, Zita Steglich-Ross and Lori L. Burke, bringing their passion for music along with their event, conference and festival planning and execution expertise to host the Davie Jazz Festival, Saturday, April 22, 2022.

Building on the solid foundation of the successful April 2019 festival, we will bring, internationally known musical entertainers, local bands, diverse food vendors and fine art and crafts to the beautiful Bergeron Rodeo Grounds. This one day event is expected to draw several thousand attendees and will be promoted regionally and nationally. Our mission is support youth programs in the Town of Davie that are interested in the arts. Therefore, ZnL Productions has applied for 501c3 certification and should be awarded prior to the event date.

Please note: ZnL Productions is committed to hosting live Covid smart events. We will maximize touchless ticketing, seat distancing and increased disinfecting protocols. We will adhere to local government and mandate face masks for all attendees and staff.

The Town of Davie Jazz Society (Davie Jazz Society) was founded in 2018 by a group of dignitaries, humanitarians, business leaders, musicians and jazz lovers committed to elevating the image of jazz and its artists in the community.

The mission of the Davie Jazz Society was formed to support the first jazz festival in the town’s history. We also promote and honor the legacy of jazz and ensure its future by identifying and nurturing the emerging jazz musicians of tomorrow. This effort has garnered both an endorsement by the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz in Washington DC and the worldwide UNESCO agency and a valuable partnership with Orange County, Seminole County, and Broward County School Boards and the Lisa Maile School. The research, dedication, and diligence to the mission and programs resulted in a PBS Artisode Documentary called “Music and Mentoring” which stems from the heritage music we call JAZZ.
