THE ROSSMOOR JAZZ CLUB CONTINUES “THE GOOD WORKS” IN 2014

I’m happy to tell JAZZ LIVES readers about another place where hot jazz and ragtime are flourishing — monthly concerts at a comfortable space in Walnut Creek, California.  It’s the Rossmoor Jazz Club, which has been going strong in 2013.  I’m told by my friend and fellow enthusiast Bob Burch that the theatre is comfortable, seating 500, and dancers are welcome.

Admission for each concert is $10 (members) and $15 (non-members), and one can become a member with an annual payment of $30.  Their 2014 series features these bands (it began with the Natural Gas Jazz Band on January 22):

Feb. 26: Ted Shaefer’s Jelly Roll Jazz Band

March 11: Stephanie Trick, Paolo Alderighi, Marty Eggers, Danny Coots (7:30 PM start)

April 23: Ken Brock’s Jambalaya Jazz Band

May 28: Clint Baker’s New Orleans Jazz Band

June 25: Jim O’Briant’s Zinfandel Stompers

July 10: Ray Skjelbred and his Cubs

August 20: Chris Bradley’s Jazz Band

September 19: Don Neely’s Royal Society Jazz Orchestra

October 20: Mike Slack’s San Francisco Feet Warmers

The November and December concerts are (at this writing) TBA, but TBA always swings, too.

The concerts will be held at the Tahoe Room of the Rossmoor Event Center, 1061 Stanley Dollar Drive, Walnut Creek, California.  The concerts begin at 7 PM and end by 9:30, with a short intermission.

Tell your jazz-loving friends.

May your happiness increase!

  6. On Monday, Sept. 22, at Grace Presbyterian Church in Walnut Creek,just outside of Rossmoor, Brian Holland and Danny Coots displayed their exceptional talents to a small group of enthusiastic listeners. AND, they agreed to show up for the * * Sept. 25 Rossmoor Dixieland Jazz Club get-together * *, when the Fog City Stompers will be there as the keynote group. It should be memorable… at the new Event Center in Rossmoor & 7 PM
