Jazz Jammers liven up Penn Street Market
READING --- What happens when five seasoned musicians, all of whom regularly perform throughout eastern and central Pennsylvania in separate pop, rock, and blues bands, get together to jam and play classic, standard JAZZ—music they love but never get to perform in their own bands? That’s what Jazz Jammers is all about: Rich DiGirolamo (guitar, vocals), Tom Montgomery (keyboard), Mike Fleming (alto and soprano sax), Pat Abel (bass), and Henry Patterson (drums) having fun and playing the jazz hits of the 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s. They will be performing this Friday at the Penn Street Market from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
Penn Street Market is open every Friday from June through October between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. It is an outdoor farmers market that also gives customers the opportunity to enjoy lunch and music while they shop.
