CSUB Jazz Coffeehouse- Saturday, October 21, 2006

The award-winning CSUB jazz program will present its first Jazz Coffeehouse concert of the new academic year Saturday, Oct. 21, 2006 at 7:30 p.m. The concert will be held in the CSUB Student Union Multi-Purpose room. Tickets will be available at the door on the night of the event. Prices are $10 for general admission and $6 for students with ID and seniors (60+).

The Zeke Victor Trio will be the headlining act. Victor is a talented young pianist from Highland High School who is making a name for himself in Bakersfield as an adventurous performer.

This concert will also feature three talented young CSUB musicians -- guitarist Greg Kalar, drummer Eddie Ziegler and Fine Arts Merit Award scholarship winner Daniel Musquez on trumpet. These three musicians are currently recording their original compositions for the upcoming CSUB Jazz album scheduled for release in early 2007.

Other talented students and community members will perform, including guitarists Andy Bonney, Sam Jarvis and Jeff Ardray, bassist Dallas Mercer, trumpeters Steve Eisen and Armando Castruita Jr., saxophonist Luis Lenzi, drummer Christian Stramaglia and trombonist David Kay.

The Jazz Coffeehouse Concert Series is a five-concert series where CSUB students and community members perform live jazz in all of its many guises. On any given night at the Jazz Coffeehouse Concert Series you can be treated to 1950's bop, 1970's fusion or 1990's new creative music. The CSUB Jazz Coffeehouse Concert Series is produced and directed by Jim Scully, guitarist, composer and member of the CSUB music faculty.
