An Evening of Jazz!
Saturday, May 30th at 7:00PM
The Storm Trio (Bob Tyler, Fran Tyler, & Dave Matayabas), and Groves3 (Dean, Alice, & Buffie Groves).
Join us in the temperature controlled Common Room where Groves3 will treat us to jazz classics such as their close-harmony arrangements of “Stars Fell On Alabama,” “East Of The Sun” & “Old Cape Cod” as well as modern favorites. Then The Storm Trio will share their heart-warming jazz stylings and the mastery that comes from performing together for over six decades. Refreshments will be available under a tent outside (to help alleviate the crowding we’ve had in past years at this very popular event.) We’ll have refreshment runners for those who may have difficulty navigating the steps. We are so fortunate to have these terrific performers share their music with us. It will be one cool evening—don’t miss it!
Suggested donation: $15 adults, $10 seniors/students, children under 12 free.
Proceeds will benefit the First Parish Benevolent Fund.
A few words about our performers:
Groves3 have immersed themselves in music their whole lives. Alice (mom) is a consummate song stylist and jazz pianist who began her musical career in her teens. Back in the day, she was part of the Storyville scene in Kenmore Square. Dean (her son) has been writing, performing, recording, and arranging music for over 40 years. Buffie (his sis) is a folksinger/songwriter and guitarist, theater actress and director, screenwriter, and teacher. She’s half of Fishken & Groves, a popular fixture of thelocal folk scene.
The Storm Trio, likewise, are total musicians. Bob (piano, vocals), Fran (vocals,drums) and Dave (bass) have been creating music on stage, in recording studios, and on radio & TV for over 60 years all around New England as well as in Florida, New York, and Oregon. They have described their performing style as “It’s jazz. It just happens.” Well, it will be a happening evening for sure!
