NYE Jazz Brunch at Starr Hill Brewery
December 31, 2017 @ 15:30 - 18:30Free
Close out 2017 with a bang! Join us for beignets, blues, brass and brews. We’ll spend the afternoon enjoying the smooth jazz stylings of The Jazz Connection and unwind before we usher in 2018.
The Jazz Connection is a cohort of local jazz musicians. The lineup includes Bob Bowen on double bass, David Weiss on piano, Brandon Rose on trumpet, and Monte Parsons on drums. Bob is one of the area’s preeminent jazz bass players. You may recognize him from his gigs with the late Hod O’Brien, and many other jazz greats. David Weiss started his piano playing career in New York City, but has recently been playing with the Jazz Collective and his own trio, “Jazz 1-2-3”. Brandon Rose is also a long time local trumpet player, and has appeared with many jazz groups around Charlottesville. The line-up is rounded out with Monte Parsons on the drums. Monte has most recently been the drummer for the Jazz Collective, a group that held a weekly restaurant gig for 11 straight years. The Jazz Connection brings a repertoire of jazz standards, blues, Latin-inspired, and funk-driven tunes that are sure to have you tapping your feet and swaying along with the band.
