Monty Alexander Jazz Festival

September 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - September 3, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Start your Saturday off right with the Monty Alexander Jazz Festival’s Jazz Brunch on Saturday, September 2 at Hunter’s Tavern, located in the Tidewater Inn in Easton.

From noon to 2 p.m., enjoy impeccably crafted brunch dishes while listening to the musical stylings of the Conservatory Classic Jazz Band. It’s a surefire way to unwind after an exciting Friday night – don’t forget Bria Skonberg will be “Shaking Up the Jazz World” at 8 p.m. at the Avalon Theatre.

The Conservatory Classic Jazz Band was formed in 2003, to bring traditional jazz to Washington D.C. audiences. From New Orleans style to small-group swing, the six-piece ensemble performs a variety of early jazz and American Standards. Their repertoire encompasses the music of Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Benny Goodman and other early jazz pioneers, in addition to composers of the Great American Songbook, like George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Hoagy Carmichael.

Befitting the afternoon’s live entertainment, the New Orleans-inspired brunch menu at Hunter’s Tavern has something for every palate. As a popular dining choice in Easton, reservations are recommended.

Looking for something to do in between the afternoon and evening performances – trumpeter Sean Jones performs at 2 p.m. at the Avalon Theatre and jazz vocalist René Marie takes the Avalon stage at 8 p.m. – why not relish in a drink or two? Visit the Tidewater Inn for Cocktails and Jazz at 5 p.m. Mingle on the idyllic terrace, libation in hand, as the Conservatory Classic Jazz Band returns for another set. As the ensemble continues to perform jazz standards, indulge your appetite. Reservations appreciated, but not required. To make a reservation for the Jazz Brunch or Cocktails and Jazz (or both), call Hunter’s Tavern at 410-822-4034.

The Monty Alexander Jazz Festival is partially underwritten by the Maryland State Arts Council and the Talbot County Arts Council. Jazz on the Chesapeake is a program of Chesapeake Music. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit Jazzonthechesapeake.com or call 410-819-0380.
