“Fifth Friday” jazz in the bookshop
The Michael Parsons Quintet
March 29th, 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.

Our Friday evening jazz series has been going strong for more than a decade, and features four great bands in rotation each month– but on those lucky occasions when there’s a fifth Friday, we get the opportunity to bring in a different aggregation for your pleasure…  this Friday, it’s pianist Michael Parsons with a fine quintet featuring Jay Sanders on trumpet; Danny Grewen on trombone; Eugene Warren on bass; and Ulf Bjorkbom on drums.  All five are young stars on the local jazz scene, and all five have played at one time or another on the Bird & Beckett stage.  We’re pleased and proud to present them as a unit under Michael Parsons’ leadership.  Much of the show will showcase Michael’s compositions; all of it will bop with alacrity.  Come down and enjoy yourself.  And bring a few bucks to help us pay the band!

Hot off the press from your neighborhood bookshop just in time for the lame duck period. 75 million voters, and counting, have rejected fascism and lies. 70 million haven’t yet made that commitment. Bully Goat’s Bluff might change a few of their minds.

Fits nicely in an invitation envelope for mailing. Fits in a pocket as well.
