And JAZZ CONTINUES....with 17 MORE CONCERTS SCHEDULED!
ANNOUNCING THE GOLD SERIES...
WMJS's traditional Monday Night Jazz Series will be held at The Guest House, 634 Stocking Ave. NW. G.R., on the 3rd Monday of each month. Food will be prepared by “That Polish Girl” catering and a cash bar by Blue Dog Tavern. Tickets will be $10 at the door for members, ($15 for nonmembers) and includes food!
These 10 concerts will be held at the “New Vintage Place”, 889 Broadway Ave, NW, Grand Rapids, Michigan. “The New Vintage Place” is an exciting venue designed and built by Pioneer Construction, and promises to be a great addition to the Grand Rapids community. It is located in the historic American Seating Park. The brain child of Board Member Steve Hilger, to define this new series, he suggests to think in terms of color:
The Blue Series will consist primarily of instrumental and modern vocal jazz, both jazz standards and contemporary versions of jazz standards, as well as original music consistent with that genre. This genre will give musicians and audiences a chance to explore post 50’s contemporary jazz brought forward to contemporary interpretations.
The Green Series will involve contemporary instrumental jazz sometimes referred to as “Smooth Jazz”. This series will bring in a different crowd of musicians to play upbeat and upscale contemporary rhythms and melodies in a way that combines contemporary jazz with jazz fusion.
The Red Series is designed for experimental jazz, intended to provide musicians and audiences a venue for expression of new, original, and untested jazz concepts similar to what Miles Davis and John Coltrane did in the early 60s.
Tickets at the door for members will be $10/door or $75/season; non-members will be $15.00/door.
