PRJC Pre-Valentine's and Mardis Gras Special with Dixieland Express of MD
   February 11, 2018, 1:30pm-4:30pm
Rosensteel Knights of Columbus of Silver Spring , 9707 Rosensteel Avenue, Silver Spring, MD Directions

dixieland express


The Dixieland Express returns February 11 for another Valentine's Day-Mardi Gras performance. Dixieland Express promises true trad jazz instrumentation and sound, and with some encouragement, we might get the band play a song suitable for marching or a few romantic tunes for Valentine's Day. Be sure to bring your parasols and handkerchiefs.

Many members of the band are also PRJC members. Pictured are Les Elkins on cornet and vocals, Kirt Vener on clarinet, Merle Biggin on tuba, John Stewart on trombone and Joel Albert on drums and photographer for the band and club. Rick Elridge is perhaps the most versatile member of the band, playing banjo, piano, doing vocals and sometime playing an instrument he invented just for this band-the Klaxophone! All members of the band are regulars meaning that they play with the same group of musicians allowing for a more cohesive true trad jazz sound.

Stride pianist Neville Dickie with the Conservatory Classic Jazz Band
     May 19, 2018 (Saturday), 2-5pm
The Calvary Lutheran Church, 9545 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD.
Conservatory Classic JB


Again, Neville Dickie, the UK's foremost stride and boogie woogie pianist. He has delighted audiences all over the world for the better part of 5 decades. Neville thrilles the PRJC since 2013, and will once again travel across the Big Pond and bring his superb talents to us, joined by our own exceptional CCJB, whose members include lead Dave Robinson on cornet/trumpet, Brian Priebe on trombone, Gary Gregg on clarinet/sax, Dan Hall on bass, Jeff Reynolds on guitar/banjo, Brian Alpert on drums, and the wildly popular Ms. Lena Seikaly on vocals.

Directions:: From the Beltway, exit south on Georgia Ave. The church is on the east side of Georgia, immediately south of the beltway (that would be on your left). Going across Georgia Ave. to enter the church can be difficult so, proceed south on Georgia about one block and turn into the shopping center with the Staples Store on your right. Continue thru the parking lot and turn left onto the exit street, Seminary Place. From there, you will be able to safely and easily get back to Georgia Avenue because there is a traffic light at Seminary Place.

 Admission:
PRJC members ($20), General admission ($25; $22.50 in advance),
Youth & Students with valid student IDs (Free).
