The concert is a fund raiser for the (financially strapped) Hartford Jazz Society. Six groups will play at the Asylum Hill Congregational Church, 814 Asylum Ave, Hartford, between 6 and 10 p.m. We will be the last band, hitting the stage at approximately 9 p.m. As an added incentive to attend, we will be debuting a couple of new pieces (which I am busy writing as you read this).
Suggested donation $25 - but no one will be turned away!
For info, please contact the Hartford Jazz Society, (860) 242-6688.
