Jazz Club of Sarasota Presents the Haferhouse Jazz Quartet
The Jazz Club of Sarasota continues its Jazz at Two concert series on Friday, October 19, 2012, 2 p.m., with the Haferhouse Jazz Quartet.
The group is comprised of Mike and Lorri Hafer, a husband and wife keyboard and vocalist duo, their son, Paul Hafer on acoustic upright bass, and Dave Dunscombe on drums.
The group will perform a selection of songs from Haferhouse's recent CD, "The Very Thought of You," along with other jazz standards and a selection of the best of the great American songbook.
Hafer's voice has been described "as smoky as a hot New Orleans night." Mike Hafer's keyboard playing has been called "cohesive and gratifyingly unobtrusive."
A portion of Jazz at Two series ticket sales is directed to the Jazz Club's scholarship program.
The Jazz Club of Sarasota's mission is to promote, preserve, and educate people about jazz, the original American art form. Founded in 1980 by the late Hal Davis, the club presents ongoing concert series, events, lectures and the annual Sarasota Jazz Festival. The organization also sponsors the Venice Jazz Festival every year.
