Jazz bookends the weekend

The Chuck Peterson Quintet on Friday, 4/22, 5:30 to 8:00 pm

Also known as the “230 Jones Street Local 6 Literary Jazz Band,” Chuck’s quintet plays a whole lot of beautiful straight-ahead jazz, in a classic West Coast mode.

Dorothy Lefkovits joins the band for a few tunes on every set…

it’s a sweetly swinging way to kick off the Easter weekend.



NOTE: We open at 2 pm on Easter Sunday, 4/24, and present two programs, at 2:30 and 4:30 — see below!

Studio 5 on Easter Sunday, 4/24, 4:30 to 6:30 pm

Studio 5 is Glen Park expat Mark Reynolds’ collaboration with Mike Dixon & friends.

Mark and family moved back to the North Bay awhile ago, but he’s coming down with Gretchen and the kids (Jillian & Jarrett) for this Easter jazz date!

Bring chocolate eggs!

And don’t forget Walker’s talk at 2:30 pm on Easter Sunday… his subject: the Mabinogion.  11 medieval Welsh tales that may or may not be among the early articulations of the Arthurian legend...
