KJ and I will be singing at the following long-standing jazz jam session this Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2011:
Who: Just Athena and KJ McElrath
What: Songs at a Jam Session Hosted By John Bennett and Jack Dawes
Where: Libby’s Restaurant
11056 SE Main Street
Milwaukie, OR 97222
When: Tuesday, September 6, 2011
Cost: No cover charge! The restaurant is open and will be serving food and drinks during the event.
KJ and I will sing a couple of songs each from the Great American Songbook. There is a variety of music performed at this jam session, with a focus on traditional jazz but swing-style music also makes an appearance. Not strictly a cabaret event, but many of the songs you will hear often also appear in cabaret shows as well. Hosted for many years by John Bennett on piano and Jack Dawes on drums, the rest of the instrumentation varies from week to week, but typically there will be a complement of guitar, banjo, saxaphones, trombone, trumpet and more. Casual atmostphere, and a fun evening–come join us!
