Would anybody a thunk it? A Peaceful Tomorrows fundraiser jamsession at an American Legion post?
But then again – this is no ordinary American Legion post – it’s in a brownstone in Harlem and European tourists and jazz enthusiasts seek it out. (Reviews on the internet says things like “You know how purely kickass margaritas taste when sipped on a beach in Mexico? This, is like that.” )
PT’s own Ken (Mambo King) Williams (and denizen of the Post) convinced the Legion Commander to let us have two floors of the Legion Hall and garden club free of charge for a PT fundraiser on Tuesday August 11.
Our great thanks to Ken and SAVE THE DATE.
A brilliant young musician name of Jason Marshall (I heard him play about a month ago at the legion/club and he reconverted me to good jazz – has an MA in Music from one of NY’s finest music schools) – on baritone sax – has agreed to play for us with his band. All musicians who bring their instruments and play a gig are invited free of charge and I will buy them the first drink (Ken says he’ll buy them the second!).
This is gonna be terrific!
