The Jazz Society welcomes “Jones & Company” to the September Jazz Gumbo. This group of versatile performers, fronted by vocalist/pianist Cheryl Jones, prides itself on its ability to transcend the traditional boundaries of music. Their treatment of a myriad of musical styles is done the only way they know how…with all of their soul. The result, an audience that feels the emotion behind every note. The group has thousands of fans along the Gulf Coast, from Bourbon Street in New Orleans Louisiana to Panama City Florida, from Mobile Alabama to their hometown of Destin Florida. In addition to Cheryl, the band includes Brent Purcell (drums), Denny Jones (bass) and Paul Scurto (trumpet). Jones & Company are perennial favorites in the “Evenings In Seville” summer concert series held in Seville Square in downtown Pensacola.
This event is sponsored by JSOP member Christine Pfeiffer, to celebrate her 74th birthday.
Admission is $7 for JSOP members; $10 guests; free for military in uniform; students $5 with ID. Jazz Gumbo is regularly scheduled on the third Monday of each month. Admission includes a cup of seafood gumbo! One may order from the menu as desired.
