Sammons Center for the Arts presents Sammons Jazz: Sticks & Bones
The Andrew Griffith Ensemble “keeps up with the Joneses” in a tribute to Andrew’s favorite drummers: Papa Joe Jones, Philly Joe Jones, and Elvin Jones. With Andrew Griffith on drums, Sergio Pamies on piano, Jonathan Fisher on bass, Shelley Carrol on sax and flute, and Chris McGuire on sax, clarinet, and trumpet, the set also features a performance by tap dancer Katelyn Harris.
Sliding into a second set of swinging jazz is Bones and Such, a unique group of gifted trombonists led by Tony Baker and featuring Ryan Haines, Eric Swanson and Greg Waits. The band includes Brad Williams on piano, Carl Hillman on bass, and Andrew Griffith on drums.
