Jazz Jam Sessions at Hero’s Welcome with Sharon Minemoto Trio

May 5 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Infidels Jazz is proud to announce a new bi-weekly Jazz jam session which will take place Hero’s Welcome at 3917 Main Street, starting in April at 2PM.
Sharon Minemoto is the perfect musician to host the house band for the first few months, as she led the jam sessions at Pat’s for years. Joining her in April and May will be some of the city’s finest bassists and drummers, including Darren Radtke, Bernie Arai, Nino DePasquale, Conrad Good and Dave Robbins.
These will be open jam sessions, which means that everybody from professionals to high school students will be welcome. Helping us in making sure that the jam is accessible to those younger members of our community will be the Fraser MacPherson Jazz Fund, who has signed on as a sponsor of the Jams. If you’re under the age of 19, just make sure you have a guardian of legal age with you. You can use the instruments of the house band, but please be respectful of them.
First few dates and personnel are listed below:
April 07 – Sharon Minemoto, Darren Radtke, Bernie Arai
April 21 – Sharon Minemoto, Darren Radtke, Nino DiPasquale
May 05 – Sharon Minemoto, Conrad Good, Dave Robbins

Sundays at Hero’s Welcome (3917 Main Street) is a bi-weekly jazz series presented by Tim Reinert of Infidels Jazz. The concept is to provide an affordable way for jazz lovers of all ages to gather and celebrate this music we love.
