Many thanks to all who turned out to hear the Jazzkickers play for the 2009 Employee Giving Campaign on Thursday and Friday. We featured a more blues and samba oriented program this year, with songs such as "Chitlins Con Carne", "Blue Bossa", "Bags Groove", "Black Orpheus", "Motorin' Along", "Beach Fatigue", "Meditation" and "Kelly and Tucker".
The Jazzkickers are Gary Berosik (drums), Steve Proper (bass), Peter Jackson (guitar), Tim Wick (keys), and Gregory Bannister (saxes). (Carmin Pluntz was unable to join us on sax this year.) We play mostly jazz standards from the Real Book and some originals, and tend to play just in the last quarter of each year, doing charity gigs and holiday parties.
