Friday, May 24th – 5:30-8:00 pm
The 230 Jones Street
Local 6 Literary Jazz Band
jazz in the bookshop
every Friday since 2002

Tony Johnson, drums; Dean Reilly, bass; and Chuck Peterson, “jazz in the bookshop” founder, tenor sax and flute

Five great musicians in one lovely band…

Ray Loeckle, tenor sax
Jerry Logas, bari sax, clarinet, flute and vocal
Glen Deardorff, guitar
Dean Reilly, bass
Tony Johnson, drums

In direct line of succession from Bird & Beckett’s earliest foray into weekly jazz parties! It all started in late 2002 when neighborhood jazz veteran Chuck Peterson enlisted friends and fellow musicians to play jazz in the bookshop every Friday after work.  Never a missed Friday since then! The musicians in the 230 Jones Street band, colleagues of Chuck from way back, carry the torch!

It makes of us a race of intellectual cowards; it changes but little if any our daily conduct toward each other. But doubt sets us free."

-- Job Harriman, 1902
