The Potomac River Jazz Club is pleased to announce that our annual Mardi Gras celebration will include a very special guest, coming from the Preservation Jazz Hall in New Orleans, Mr. Ronell (Roo) Johnson making a special appearance. Ronell will be joining the Orleans Express Jazz Band for an exciting afternnon at Rosensteel Hall. Ronell is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist specializing in Traditional New Orleans jazz. While he is best known for his trombone playing, he is also proficient on tuba, piano, organ, plus vocals.

Born and raised in New Orleans, Ronel was greatly influenced by legendary jazz trombonist James "Trummy" Young of the Louis Armstrong Jazz Band and incorporates a tailgate technique developed by Kid Ory. In 2003, Ronell began performing at Preservation Hall and later became a member of its principle touring band.

Ronell will be joined by Orleans Express musicians Lew Elkins on cornet, Halley Schoenberg on reed, Greg Williams on drums, John O'Brian on banjo, John Stewart also on trombone, and Willie Clark on tuba. Dont be surprised if Ronell joins Willie for a tuba-sousaphone bass duet! Get ready for a true New Orleans Mardi Gras event with a whole lot of good ol' New Orleans music, marching, and merry making!

Expect familiar classics and a few rarities, as well, along witty, insightful, and partially-accurate historical commentary from Seth. By the time they're done, you'll be fully saxxinated and the sound of Seth's clarinet will be ringing so loudly in your ears, you won't even hear the cicadas. The quintet includes: Seth Kibel -- clarinet, flute, saxophone; Flo Anito – vocals; Sean Lane – piano; Bob Abbott -- double bass; and Joey Antico -- drums.

PRJC Spring Fling concert with The Jefferson Street Strutters
   June TBD, 2022, 1:30-4pm, Online Only, via Facebook
Rosensteel Knights of Columbus of Silver Spring, 9707 Rosensteel Avenue, Silver Spring, MD Directions


Jefferson Street Strutters

PRJC is bringing back our favorite Jefferson Street Strutters for our June concert. The present day Jefferson Street Strutters band was formed by a group of government traffic engineers for off duty recreation and who adopted the name The Traffic Jammers. With the Washington area’s legendary traffic mess, that name begged to be changed and it did when the band started rehearsing a member’s basement on Jefferson Street, Falls Church. What has remained the same is the band’s devotion to toe tapping tunes of the early jazz days through the twenties, thirties and beyond. Its present day members are anxiously awaiting to perform again for PRJC with a roster of exciting vocals and instrumental solos.

Tickets at the door can be purchased with cash or checks only. Exact change is appreciated!
 Admission:
PRJC members ($20), General admission ($25; $22.50 in advance),
Youth & Students with valid student IDs (Free).
