Jazz Social: Jazz Jam Featuring Dave Braham Trio
February 18 @ 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Calling all musicians/vocalists, amateur or professional. This month’s jazz social is a jam session. All are welcome – bring your instrument(s) and play, and if you’ve got a voice, we’d love to hear you sing.
Please register in advance – email Carrie Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org
The “house band” will be the Dave Braham Trio. Dave plays swinging, soulful Hammond B3 organ in the tradition of Jack McDuff, Groove Holmes and Jimmy Smith – he is one of the most underrated and one of the best jazz organists on the scene today. Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Dave has carved out a solid reputation playing as a featured sideman with Houston Person, Etta Jones, Willis Gatortail Jackson, Mark Murphy, Johnny Lytle, Irene Reid, Al Grey, Ernestine Anderson, and David Fathead Newman.
Doors open 3:00pm;
Shows 3:30pm – 5:30pm (unless otherwise noted)
