The NYC Jazz Meetup Group Message Board › Saturday- Great finale!
New York, NY
Announcing a new Meetup for The New York City Jazz Meetup Group!
What: First Annual Underground Big Apple Jazz Festival
When: July 4, 2009
Last Day of the First Annual Underground Big Apple Jazz Festival! I hope you have enjoyed the week!
We are starting out the day with a 2:00PM jazz brunch at Smoke!!! There is NO music charge! We will be hearing the Renaud Penant Trio. For those of you who have been with me at The Post that is the drummer who plays there on Sundays. He is wonderful! Guests with festival passes will be able to enter a raffle with a chance to win the "SMOKE 10 Year Anniversary 4-CD Box set.
After brunch we will stroll over to Minton's Playhouse for some of their 48 hour jazz marathon!
Later we will go to St Nick's Pub to hear Arlene Taley for the 7:30PM show.
Those who want to keep going can join us at 9:30 at Showman's to hear Ray Schinnery.
And as a grand finale we will be back at Minton's where the UNDERGROUND BIG APPLE JAZZ FEST PRESENTS A MIDNIGHT JAM SESSION WITH SUGAR HILL JAZZ QUARTET.
IMPORTANT NOTE I need a headcount for brunch (no reservation required) so please let me know if you are joining us for this very special event.
