  • Spotlight Series: Jeff Stockham on Trumpet

    An Evening of Romantic Jazz
    Wednesday, February 11 from 6:30 - 9:30

    You’ve heard the saying “jack of all trades, master of none.” Well, my friend Jeff Stockham is the exception to the rule! From Civil War-era recreation bands to hard be-bop and everything in-between, Jeff does it all, and very well indeed. We’re lucky that Jeff makes a swing through Florida every winter and makes time to stop in Gainesville, and we really look forward to doing our “two-horn” gigs (the first was a Gainesville Friends of Jazz concert, “Double Take,” in 2005). Jeff is well-known to New York music fans. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music and a veteran of the renowned Eastman Jazz Ensemble, his performance credits read like a Who’s Who of the upstate New York music scene. Our “Pre-Valentine’s Day” show will feature romantic standards, so beat the holiday rush and crowds and join us for a great night. Last month our Spotlight Series evening was a total sell-out, so make your reservations now!
