The PRJC Fall Frolic, with Harry Watters and his All Stars
     Sept 17, 2017, 2-5pm
Rosensteel Knights of Columbus of Silver Spring , 9707 Rosensteel Avenue, Silver Spring, MD Directions

Harry Waters    If you do not know Harry, he is an absolute genius player. He played for the PRJC about 6 years ago - maybe once since then - it is a treat to hear and watch him!

Harry performed for 22 years with the United States Army Band in Washington, DC, where he was a member of the Army Blues Jazz Ensemble and the U.S. Army Brass Quintet. His extensive solo discography includes releases on the Soundset, Summit and Centaur labels.

Here is the band roster for Sunday:

"SIX NEAT GUYS:"
Harry Watters, trombone
Graham Breedlove, trumpet
Henning Hoehne, woodwinds
Bob Boguslaw, piano
Gil Corella, tuba
Randy Jennings, drums

Come join a special reunion of six great friends from our nation's military bands, as they take us all on a musical journey through timeless traditional jazz classics!
Watters' professional performing experience draws from multiple genres spanning three decades. Prior posts include bass trombonist with the Baton Rouge Symphony, staff musician at Walt Disney World, leader and musical director for the Dukes of Dixieland and bandleader at the Main Street Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Harry has toured with the Boston Brass and performed with Jens Lindemann, John Clayton, Sam Pilafian, Kenny Loggins, Alan Vizzutti, Doc Severinsen, Bonerama, Al Hirt, Pete Fountain, Erich Kunzel, Doug Yeo, Kevin Mahogany, Wycliffe Gordon, Lou Rawls, Maureen McGovern, Bill Watrous, Carl Fontana, Jiggs Whiggam, James Moody and Peter Erskine. In addition, he has appeared as a featured soloist with the Salt River Brass under the direction of Patrick Sheridan, the Syracuse Symphony, the Baton Rouge Symphony, the Louisiana Philharmonic, the Tulsa Pops, the West Virginia Symphony, the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra, the University of North Texas One O'Clock Lab Band, the Janacek Philharmonic, the Moldovan Festival Orchestra and the U.S. Army Orchestra.
