Chuck and Glen

Friday, December 22nd – 5:30-8 pm
230 Jones Street, Local 6, Literary Jazz Band
jazz in the bookshop every Friday since 2002

The legacy lives on… Chuck Peterson founded our Friday night jazz programming fifteen years ago… That’s him on tenor sax in the accompanying photo. He’s retired now and just comes back once in awhile, but his colleagues carry it on.

The 230 Jones Street, Local Six Literary Jazz Band is his concoction. Now it features read players Ray Loeckle and Jerry Logas on the front line, along with long-time rhythm section players Glen Deardorff on guitar, Dean Reilly on bass and Tony Johnson on drums. Through the years, Chuck’s band has included bassist Don Prell, guitarist Scott Foster (pictured here), reed player/arranger Bill Perkins, vocalist Dorothy Lefkovits, and a host of other wonderful players rotating through. The pool of jazz players in the Bay Area is rich, storied and immensely talented. We’re very fortunate that way.

Support the music. Come out, empty your wallet, tell your friends.

Enjoy the music!
