Athens Jazztet To Open Rhythm on the River Series

The PB&J’s (Pomeroy Blues and Jazz Society) are happy to announce the Athens Jazztet will be the opening act for the 2012 Rhythm on the River music series. Opening night is set for June 29 at 8:00pm. Phil Ohlinger, PB&J’s President, says “I’m ecstatic to have the Jazztet perform, wonderful music from a group of wonderful musicians, true professionals. We’re fortunate to have them this close to home.”

The Jazztet evokes the classic two-horn quintet sound of Miles Davis and Horace Silver while encompassing elements of music from across the spectrum of jazz repertoire. From blues to hard bop, from Latin to New Orleans funk, a Jazztet performance has something for everyone – whether or not they consider themselves jazz fans. The Jazztet features valve trombonist Ernie Bastin, saxophonist Matt James, guitarist John Horne, bassist Terry Douds and drummer Guy Remonko. For more information visit
