**** Exciting News! ****
During the past few months, my friend and associate
has spent many hours of hard work in meetings throughout the Delaware Valley contacting her friends, associates, and colleagues in order to find a new home for JOTSS (Jazz On The Southside.)
She has contacted me with the exciting news that she located a perfect venue for Jazz, called The Bainbridge Club located at 1529 Bainbridge Street which is in the historic section of center city Philadelphia, The City of Brotherly Love. The amenities of this venue has hosted various types of entertainment thru the years.
Located on the second floor of The Hotel Brotherhood, This club is set up for parties with tables and comfortable chairs with plenty of room for other activities such as dancing or performances
The banquet hall features a great sound system for a DJ or live music especially Jazz. Other amenities include a beautiful grand piano, full cocktail bar area, soft lights provided by the many wall sconces for the intimate evening hours to enhance any musical presentation from a small stage for entertainment.
Currently, Lorraine and her staff have been diligently consulting on various projects within “The Avenue of the Arts” section of Broad Street in Philadelphia, plus other areas in the Tri-State vicinity to help enhance the future of “Jazz and the Cultural Arts.”
The achievement of these successful goals plus visits to New York’s 966 Jazz club and discussions with the famous Jazz artists, Wynton Marsalis & Lou Donaldson, afforded Lorraine the opportunity to serve as a project consultant to many associations within the famed Philadelphia Avenue of the Arts section of the city including, The Clef Club, The Kimmell Center, St. John Neumann Place Diversified Community services and presently with The Bainbridge Club and Hotel Brotherhood.
Lorraine Yarborough also provided me with a Calendar of Events schedule for the coming months of this 2015 year that will feature notable jazz musicians from the area that will include the Legendary Tony Williams Ensemble plus The Ed Dennis Quartet who are keeping Straight-Ahead & Mainstream Jazz alive.
We appreciate all efforts from Lorraine Yarborough for sharing this Calendar of Events from JOTSS
. . .to inform all Jazz fans throughout the Tri-State area in addition to more important information of the participating musicians and scheduled performances for the promotion of
Jazz & Cultural Arts within the City of Brotherly Love.
