An Evening of Jazz in Staunton

My friend and owner of Shenandoah Pizza and Shenandoah Hops, John Huggins, is promoting another night of music in Staunton, this time a jazz concert. The concert, "An Evening of Jazz," will be held February 26th at 6:30 pm at ShenanArts at the nTelos Theater. Featured performers are The S.P.L.A.A.A.T. Quintet (Society for the Preservation of Live American Aural Art Traditions) and Chaise Lounge. The dress is semi-formal and the cost is $25 and will include hors d'oeuvres presented by Chef Drew Buzik.

S.P.L.A.A.T. features Tom Harbeck on guitar, Lew Morrison on bass, Marlon Foster on drums, Tim Weir on trumpet and flugelhorn, and Brett Kirby on saxophone. S.P.L.A.A.A.T. specializes in standards from legends such as Duke Ellington and Miles Davis. Chaise Lounge features five of the Washington area's best jazz musicians fronted by the vocals of Marilyn Older. They specialize in original tunes and standards and have an early sixties vibe.

For more information on the show see the event Website. I'm sure the night will be one to remember, as John and Cheryl work hard and always do their best to make people happy.
