  • Spotlight Jazz with Jeff Stockham

    February 6, 2019

    with the Nick DeCarlis Quartet
    Two Seatings
    6:00 (music 6:30-7:45)
    8:00 (music 8:15-9:30)

    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 (like his “Stock Market Swing Orchestra” big band), 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—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. 

    Last month our Spotlight Series evening was packed, so make your reservations now!
