Buck Creek Jazz Band in Concert
February 24 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Our Savior Lutheran Church in Vero Beach presents the next event in their Fine Arts Series, the Buck Creek Jazz Band. The community concert will be on February 23rd at 4 p.m. Buck Creek was formed in 1977 and is made up of seven musicians who play in the style of Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver and other early New Orleans musicians. Their intention is to apply their instrumentation and techniques to a variety of tunes that span the 20th century. The band has appeared at every major traditional jazz festival in this country, including the Kool Jazz Festival in Washington, D.C. and the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee in California. Outside their native country the BCJB has played the Victoria (British Columbia) Jazz Festival and the Edinburgh, Scotland, Festival. They have been featured on jazz cruises in the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, the Baltic Sea, Panama Canal, Alaska appeared and the St. Lawrence Seaway. Buck Creek has played at the Tampa Jazz Festival, twice at the Clearwater Jazz Festival and Ft. Lauderdale Jazz Festival. In a poll of its readers, the West Coast Jazz Rag voted Buck Creek the fourth best traditional jazz band in the country. Although the original rhythm section has moved on or gone on to play with the jazz greats in heaven, the original “front line” remains in-place working together after forty-two years. The concert is free, but donations will be accepted. For more information call 772-567-2253. Our Savior is located at 1850 Sixth Ave. in Vero Beach, FL.
