The Jōst Project | Jazz 

Fri 6/13 8pm FREE EVENT
Paul Jōst (vocals, harmonica), Tony Miceli (vibraphones) and Kevin MacConnell (acoustic bass) make up the jazz collective initially formed by Tony and Kevin, with the purpose of performing the rock music that they grew up with in a jazz format. The seeds of this idea were planted in Tony’s 2005 recording “Hippie Jazz.” When Tony heard Paul, a multi-talented musician as well as vocalist, he felt such a strong musical connection that he invited him to be part of the group. Because of Paul’s strong musical influence and arranging talent, Tony and Kevin were convinced the group should have Paul’s name and they became The Jōst Project.

Troy Anderson | Jazz

Troy Anderson brings Louis Armstrong to life with his expert trumpet skills and signature gravely voice in a performance of swinging jazz classic and Armstrong favorites.
