First Church to Host Jazz Bones Concert and Dinner
The Jazz Bones will be presenting a concert at First Church of Monson on Saturday, December 3, at 7:00 p.m. The Jazz Bones, directed by David Neill, originated as a group in 1985 as a performance group of the Western Massachusetts Trombone Association. The group consists of five trombones, a guitar, bass, and drums. This unique ensemble plays arrangements written in five part harmony especially for trombones. Whether playing hard swing, fast jazz, or sweet ballads, they are backed by a first class rhythm section. Their repertoire consists of swing, jazz standards, blues, rock, Latin, and funk. Some of the numbers they plan for the evening are "Just Friends; Don't Get Around; All of Me; Bad, Bad Leroy Brown; Los Matadores; and California Dreaming." The concert is supported by the Monson Cultural Council. Concert tickets will be available at the door for $5.00.
The Music Committee of First Church will prepare a pre-concert dinner which is open to the public. The menu is baked ham, roasted rosemary potatoes, homemade applesauce, butternut squash, and a special dessert. The dinner will be served at 5:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of First Church. Tickets for the concert and dinner are $20.00 and are available by calling Gail at (413) 267-4818.
