CSUB to launch Jazz Coffeehouse Concert Series in November

The CSUB Jazz Program is pleased to launch another season of jazz coffeehouse concerts on November 2, 2013 at 7:30pm in the Music Building, room 127. These events, a staple of the University for over 30 years, provide a venue for student and professional performers to present original music and standards from the jazz repertory.

The CSUB Jazz Collective will headline the event featuring all 14 students enrolled in small jazz ensembles.  The group will present four tunes by the genre-bending ensemble - Snarky Puppy. This music - with strong overtones of R&B, Pop, Rock and Jazz - is both accessible and dense. This music is meant for study and dancing: quite the dichotomy.  Featured players in this group include Alejandro Arvizu, Cameron Poehner, Tony Rinaldi, Jay Smith, Fernando Montoya and James Russell. 

Other groups on the bill feature students from CSUB as well as students from Bakersfield College.  These students will present music by jazz luminaries such as Horace Silver, Miles Davis and others. Additionally, a group of CSUB students will present a set of original compositions. Music by Tony Rinaldi, Alejandro Arvizu and others will be shared.  This music marries old with new and gives our students an opportunity to shine through improvisation.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for seniors (60+) and students with ID.  Tickets can be purchased at the door on the night of the event, or reserved by calling 661.654.2511.  Seating is limited to 100 - so please call to reserve your seat now.
