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:
Bernard “Pretty” Purdie: October 21 & 22
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
Sara Gazarek with New West Guitar Group: March 17 & 18
We’re also bringing back the BendBroadband Free Music Education Workshops! The free, two-hour workshops allow Central Oregon’s musicians and singers to learn from this year’s series musicians. There are three chances to hit a workshop this season:
- Saturday, Oct 22nd 11:15am to 1:15pm
- Saturday, Feb 11th 11:15am to 1:15pm
- Saturday, Mar 18th 11:15am to 1:15pm
