Jazz at Two Presents the Joe Bruno Group
The Jazz Club of Sarasota concludes its 2013 "Jazz at Two" concert series with the Joe Bruno Group, April 26, 2013. A fixture on the local music scene since 1991, the group features members of the multi-generational Bruno family of musicians. Trumpeter Joe Sr. has been playing professionally for over 70 years while his son, bassist Joe Jr., followed in the family footsteps and has been a professional musician since the seventies. Both are offspring of legendary New England bandleader Tony Bruno, who backed up such greats as Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. The series, which was founded in 2001, showcases the region's top jazz performers on Fridays, between 2 and 4 p.m., at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Sarasota, 3975 Fruitville Road, Sarasota. Tickets are $7 for Jazz Club members and $12 for non-members. A portion of ticket sales goes to the Jazz Club's scholarship fund.

The Jazz Club of Sarasota's mission is to promote, preserve, present, and educate people about jazz, the original American art form. Founded in 1980 by the late Hal Davis, the club presents ongoing concert series, jam sessions, lectures and the annual Sarasota Jazz Festival.
