Beginning July 1, 2018 I have been named the Artistic Director for a new jazz concert series, the Bop Island Jazz Festival at The Woodstock Playhouse. There will be both small group concerts and Big Band concerts featuring the Bop Island Big Band.
Each concert will take place on Sundays at 3pm. The small group concerts include guitarist Peter Bernstein, saxophonist Joel Frahm, Rick Montalbano on B3 organ and pianist Ted Rosenthal & his trio.
The Bop Island Big Band is comprised of 16 great jazz and studio musicians and kicks off on Sunday September 9th @ 3pm with a celebration of The Music of Slide Hampton.
The festival's website will be live as of July 15th at www.bopislandjazzfestival.com.
I hope you will join us for some great jazz in a wonderful setting this Fall.
