"Jazz Under the Stars" -Larry Marshall Quartet

December 04, 2014

This “out of this world” series is back for another season! Enjoy live jazz by some of the region’s best groups in an unmatched “atmosphere” — the Neag Planetarium! Great musical performances are enhanced by visually stunning images on the theatre’s dome above. Food and drinks are available for purchase, provided by ViVA Bistro and Tapas Lounge.

Tonight - Larry Marshall Quartet

Drummer, composer, and educator, Larry Marshall, has appeared on over 50 CDs as a performer and/or producer in the U.S, Europe, and Japan. He lived in Japan from 2006 through 2012, and performed in clubs and venues all over that country, as well as in South Korea, Thailand, and other parts of Asia. Marshall moved back to Berks and now resides near Geigertown. His band also includes Jimmy Wood, piano; Bob Meashey, trumpet; and Steve Meashey, bass.

Cost: $20

There’s limited seating under the dome, so pre-registration is strongly suggested. Call Lindsay Crist at 610-371-5850 x230.

Presented by Hair On The Avenue with the additional support of the Boscov’s Berks Jazz Fest and the Berks Arts Council.
