The Legacy of the Clarissa Room: Blues on the Hour/Jazz on the Half, a benefit for John Starr's family at Water Street on Sunday
Tomorrow, Water Street Music Hall is hosting a benefit show from 3:00 to 9:00 pm to benefit Mike and Jenny of the Starr family, who ran The Clarissa Room (a favorite of mine) after its founder John Starr's death until its closing early last year. Jazz performances on the half hour will include Mike Melito, Freddie Colon & the Latin Jazz Quartet, Vince Ercolamento, and jazz singer Janet Beaman. Performances also by Coupe de Villes, Rhythm Dogs, John Cole Blues Band, King Bees, and Dan Schmitt and the Shadows. The lineup information is from the D&C; Water Street's site has a different set of performances.
It's an all ages show. $10 at the door. It should be a great show! I know I'm getting this posted kind of late, but plead jazz fatigue after attending Art Loves Jazz, the benefit for WGMC Jazz 90.1 radio, on Thursday, and seeing John Sneider (brother of Bob) at the Strathallan last night.
