Oscar-nominated and Grammy-winning singer and composer Jon Batiste will headline the Hampton Jazz & Music Festival in June. Other featured performers include Boyz II Men and Boney James.

Tickets for the three-day festival, held at Hampton Coliseum, go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. Tickets start at $95.

Batiste, a five-time Grammy Award winner, will hit the stage on Sunday, June 30. Batiste is the former music director and pianist for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and is known for his crossover mix of jazz, R&B, soul and other genres. He recently received his second Oscar nod, for Best Original Song, for “It Never Went Away” from the documentary “American Symphony.”

The multi-Grammy-winning group Boyz II Men will perform on Saturday, June 29. The harmonizing vocal group — Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris and Shawn Stockman (now, minus bass Michael McCary) — has sold more than 60 million albums since its rise to fame in the early 1990s.

James will also perform Saturday, and singer and songwriter KEM is the Friday headliner.
