JC ORIGINALS - JAZZ! Friday, June 3

Wow! Here we go again, with another JC Originals showcase at Moore's Lounge!

JC Originals means this night brings you all Jersey City talent! In fact, the bandleaders from all three of these amazing ensembles live UPtown. (That's what we've been talking about!) And many of the band members call Jersey City home too.

It's almost summer, and JC Originals Jazz! is going to inject a little cool into that hot....

The talent:
  • Village Drums of Freedom:Drum Jazz. In 2009, VDF celebrated its 40th anniversary as a Trinidadian and Caribbean music powerhouse.
  • Bantu Dub Project. This South African-led ensemble swings totally sublime.
  • GMJ Groove. Virtuosos abound in this rock-jazz fusion trio, with sax, violin, bass and drums.
And this time around, we've got an amazing production group on board to make things smooth and cool for you. Nick Ciavatta, CEO of Friggin Fabulous Productions; Trish Szymanski, Executive Director of Uptown Crew; and Neva Wartell, ethnomusicologist and the brains (and heart) behind the Music for the Masses movement, are bringing their formidable experience and skills to this project. (Check out our recent press coverage on NJ.COM.)

Thank you to the producers for putting this event together and for donating a portion of proceeds to Uptown Crew.

Doors open at 8pm.
$10 suggested donation.

And don't forget
Miss Ruth's Famous Friday Night Fish Fry...yummy!!!

All jazz, all night.

This event is part of JC Fridays.
