Racine Journal Times talking our upcoming jazz concert at the Racine Theatre this Saturday.
RACINE – Jean’s Jazz Series presents the second in its season of three evenings celebrating the diversity of jazz with Kevin Brown and Friends and the Kal Bergendahl Project at 7 p.m. Saturday.
The musical series is in its fifth season. All performances are at the Racine Theatre Guild, 2519 Northwestern Ave.
Kevin Brown and Friends bring jazz tradition to a smooth jazz concept from Racine’s own Kevin Brown (by day, an assistant principal at Gilmore Middle School) on tenor sax, Billie Johnson on bass, Brian Harris of Waukegan at the piano, Milwaukee’s RoeMarcus Jones beating the drums and vocalist Jasmun Song.
Kal Bergendahl Project steps into the worlds of R & B, pop and smooth jazz to create a distinctive, riveting mix of music. Notable members include Harold Mims (keyboard), Racine native Jeremy Scott (saxophone) and Kal Bergendahl (bass).
