Jazz Cabaret: Backstage at the Rozsa
Michigan Tech’s newest Director of Jazz Studies, Adam Meckler, presents another backstage jazz experience at the Rozsa on January 24th and 25th at 7:30 PM. Student jazz combos and a few guest artists will be playing pieces from across the genre’s history, dipping into Traditional Jazz, Hard Bop, Funk, and more. The Rozsa’s main stage will be converted into a classic jazz club complete with café tables and refreshments. The club atmosphere will help the bands guide you through this colorful history and flex their creative muscles, telling the story of the art as it has evolved through time.
According to Meckler, “Our four Jazz combos will perform music by artists such as Charles Mingus, Ornette Coleman, Thelonious Monk, Thundercat, Louis Cole, Roy Hargrove, Snarky Puppy and more! We will transform the stage in to a classic jazz club atmosphere. Enjoy some drinks and popcorn while you soak it all in!”
Saturday, January 25 at 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
