On Friday, April 15 at 7:30pm, The Dance Hall in Kittery presents another in a series of jazz concerts as part of its “intimate listening room experience." Chris Klaxton brings a team of familiar faces - Taylor O’Donnell, Seth Lewis, and Eric Von Oeyen have graced the stage as key players in many a memorable performance. This time, the band of old friends will perform favorite selections from their very personal and time-tested repertoire as a peer group going back decades.
Klaxton, having known Seth Lewis for over 25 years, spent his formative college years as bandmates and roommates with Eric Von Oeyen, and traveled the world with his better half, Taylor O’Donnell (with whom he currently resides, performs, and co-teaches), cites the group as “having so much to fall back upon. As a group of friends we have such a diverse skill set and varied interest in music, and have been such a part of each other’s growth that there is so much overlap and common ground. With that kind of love and tenderness on the bandstand, it’s hard to go wrong.”
The band intends to perform their most beloved jazz classics as well as their favorite tunes from the pop / folk / indie arena: Clark Terry, Gershwin, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, and Anais Mitchell.
Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.
