First, I’m so excited about this new website! It was designed by Scott Sanders at his company Park Bench Digital. Scott had a great vision and concept for the site, and I like the functionality of it. Most of the pictures (the better quality ones!) were taken by Stephen Pariser of Stephen Pariser Photography. Stephen is one of the best, and he is the official photographer for the Columbus Jazz Orchestra. A big “THANK YOU” to Stephen for all of his great photos!
I’m really excited about some of the gigs coming up – later this month (Oct. 22-25) I’m featured again with the Columbus Jazz Orchestra in a show that features the music of Count Basie and Duke Ellington. Also performing will be violinist Christian Howes and saxophonist Shawn ‘Thunder’ Wallace. It’s going to be a great show!
Sunday, November 29 will be the last House Jazz Series Concert of the year, and the last one for a little while. We’ve had a very successful 6-year run, starting at my house and moving to The Clintonville Woman’s Club, and now we’re going to take a little break and do possibly three concert dates next year. Send an email to me if you would like to be on my mailing list for the House Jazz Series and other special events! We will be having our annual holiday concert on Sunday, November 29 at the Clintonville Woman’s Club, and we’d love to see you, so come on out!
Speaking of holiday music, The Dave Powers Trio will be performing at Columbus’ newest music venue, “Notes”. Notes is a great, new place located in the Brewery District on S.

There will be 2 shows (8pm and 10pm) Saturday, December 19, and a matinee performance on Sunday, December 20 at 3pm. Come see The Dave Powers Trio at Notes!
The Dave Powers Duo will be playing a concert in Punta Gorda, FLA on Saturday, January 16. It’s called “Pops In The Park,” and will be held in History Park in Punta Gorda. We’re so excited – we’re gonna rock the place! The music will be fun, oldie-themed music from the ’50’s to more contemporary.
