Don’t miss Jazz at the Oxford’s 7th season

Don’t miss Jazz at the Oxford’s 7th season

Our favorite time of year is just around the corner. Yes, snow-filled days on Bachelor are ahead (so fast, we might add), but we’re talking about Jazz at the Oxford.

The seventh season kicks off next month, and once again, BendBroadband is proudly a sponsor. The concert series brings world-class jazz musicians to Bend’s renowned Oxford Hotel for live performances throughout the winter, with most artists playing three shows during a weekend.

Season 7 is going to be a great one. Check out who’s on tap:

The world’s most recorded drummer, ranked the 20th greatest drummer of all-time by Rolling Stone, has appeared on 4,000+ albums with some of music’s legends. His style is described as the “funkiest soul beat” in the business, utilizing his own “Purdie Shuffle”.

Tuck & Patti: November 18 & 19

The Bad Plus: January 13 & 14

The Brubeck Brothers Quartet: February 10 & 11
