Featured Performances and Shows:
SATURDAY 8/25/12: 8pm
Spontaneous Invention at the Avalon Theatre (Stoltz room), Easton, MD
Dave Schiff, Mike McShane and Joe make their debut performance in the intimate Stoltz Listening Room. From the Avalon Theatre website:
"Spontaneous Invention is a jazz trio consisting of Dave Schiff (who performed for 20 years with the U.S. Navy’s premiere jazz ensemble, the Commodores), Mike McShane, and Joe Holt. The musical conversation of Dave, Mike, and Joe is borne of a unique intuitive connection they share…Even if you don't think you like jazz, you will recognize that something interesting is going on here, and be drawn to the conversation."
