Benefit For Olympia Jazz Central Featuring Tracy Hooker and Hook Me Up
This is a fund raiser for Olympia Jazz Central in order to continue the promotion of the art of jazz, jazz youth education, and the continual building of the jazz community in the South Salish Sea/Puget Sound region. Tracy D. Hooker and his band Hook Me Up will be performing (THANK YOU TRACY!) No-host bar and of course snacks! There will be a silent auction (please bring cash or check). We need your support! For the past several years OJC (six volunteers!) has been promoting and supporting live jazz in South Salish Sea/Puget Sound region. Last year we became a non-profit in order to continue the promotion of live jazz and to be able to provide scholarship opportunities for our local youth to attend jazz camps and local workshops. Let's keep the music alive! Let the funding begin! It is VERY IMPORTANT to RSVP and name your guest(s) as the Eagles is a private club ~ we will only hold your name for this event. You may also pay in advance on Monday nights at the R&R and of course you can donate more than $10! Thanks for all your support ~ we really appreciate all you jazz cats ~ all you players and appreciators and listeners!

What we're about

Do you know who Miles Davis is? You must also know that Bird, Trane and Cannonball are not politicians. How about Charles Mingus, Max Roach or Chick Corea? Maybe you have LP's of Oscar Peterson, J.J. Johnson or Stan Kenton or possibly Don Cherry? If this is you, you must be part of an exceptional crowd that seeks-out the solid groove or the smokin' jam session, where the sounds are cool and the standards are hot. Perhaps you are of the Latin side of jazz where Tito Puente and Poncho Sanchez moves your being. Did I see you at the Maraca and The New Collective concert at SPSCC? Or Maybe it's hearing Night and Day by Sinatra or A-Tisket, A-Tasket by Ella or perhaps Tenderly by Sarah Vaughan or Honeysuckle Rose by Joe Williams? Now you don't have to go all the way to the Lincoln Center to see Wynton Marsalis or the Village Vanguard to hear the Maria Schneider Big Band. We've got the local jazz scene right here in Olympia. Sometimes Seattle is just too far to go and I-5 can be a real headache. Sadly, the IAJE conventions are now long gone but fortunately for us, the jazz party starts here. Did you know there are about 50-Olympia based jazz musicians and vocalists who perform right here in our local community? It's time to get the word out! Come join us to create a community where the music thrives, the musicians jam and the cultured gather to support Olympia live jazz. We are your classic jazz connection in Olympia!
