A few years ago, I happened to be at Central School for a benefit jazz concert. On stage that night were some of the finest jazz musicians I've ever heard. I can guarantee you that, on that same night, there were people in Manhattan that payed a lot of money to see musicians who were not as talented as the folks on stage at Central School that evening.

Do not miss this show! many of the same players will be there as well as our own hometown keyboard wizard, Chester Daigle!
