Dear Parents & Students – Our Jazz I Ensemble is performing at Jimmy Mak’s on Tuesday, May 10th at 6:30pm. Jimmy Mak’s is an iconic jazz club in downtown Portland. The SHS Jazz Band performed there about 5 years ago. I am excited that we have the opportunity to perform again. Please continue reading for very important info.
221 NW 10th Ave.
(Between Davis and Everett)
6:30-7:30 – SHS Jazz I
8:00 – Mel Brown Septet
The Mel Brown Septet is an incredible experience. I highly encourage our jazz students to plan on staying to hear some of these phenomenal musicians. http://melbrownseptet.com/
Important: There is a $6 cover charge to get into the club. Everyone in attendance will have to pay (except for performers).
Important: We are welcome to stay for Mel’s first set of music at no additional cost, the OLCC requires that minors be out of the club no later than 9:30pm.
Jazz I Parents: I am figuring out a plan for transportation. We will most likely carpool & drive ourselves to this event. Students & Parents can leave when they need to. I will need help transporting Vibes, Drumset, Bass & Amp, Chairs, and Music Stands. I will confirm the transportation plan soon via email. Due to the late evening we will be having that Tuesday night on May 10th, and the fact that the OSAA Band Competition is that Saturday, May 14th, we will not be having organized jazz rehearsals the mornings of Wednesday, Thursday, Friday of that week. The room will be open and available for study hall and practice.
