Jazz in Fort Pierce


Just a short post today to tell everybody about the Jazz & Blues Society of Ft.Pierce. They have Jazz Jam every Tuesday night at this old restored theater in downtown Fort Pierce. It is the Sunset Theater. Sunset also has an extensive listing of concerts during the Oct to May period( that is when all the money from the North comes to Fl).

Anyway the society has a jazz ensemble which really had a nice sound(keyboard, trumpet, sax, trombone, bass(upright) and drums).

Last night was auditions by high school seniors competing for $1,000 scholarships for college. They had trombone, singer, guitar, drummer, and sax contestants. All did extremely well.

Anyway, posted this in case you end up in Ft. Pierce on a Tuesday. In the summer they play every other Tuesday.
