NORRISTOWN, Pennsylvania (Oct 10, 2012) Cryinsam Entertainment and Rich Rogers present live jazz at August Moon Restaurant featuring The George Weldon Quartet on Saturday, October 13 from 8 - 11pm.
Cryinsam Entertainment and founder, Rich Rogers, are proud to showcase the talent of local jazz giant, George Weldon, and the George Weldon Quartet. In the same effort as other Arts organizations working toward the development of Norristown as a destination town, Mr. Rogers set his sights on a jazz revival on Main Street when he moved to Norristown in 1999. Work of groups like Norristown Arts Council, Centre Theatre, Iron Age Theatre and Theatre Horizon have helped to pave the way and make an evening of Jazz possible in Norristown. The catalyst for Jazz Night came through the renovation of the well-known main street restaurant, August Moon. “I was visiting August Moon for a meeting with owner, Myong Ja Ryu, and asked to see the newly renovated portions of the restaurant. When I saw the side room addition to the bar, I knew I had finally found the perfect, pre-existing jazz space in Norristown,” said Rogers. “The rest was a matter of presenting a plan to the owner and manager of August Moon and finding a house band.” With brainstorming and help from local businessman, Eddie Turner of Turner Concepts, the plan for Jazz Night at August Moon was developed. Rogers identified George Weldon, headliner and founder of The George Weldon Quartet, as the perfect musician to fill the order.
Jazz Night at begins on Saturday, October 13. Second Saturday Jazz Night at August Moon will take place on the second Saturday of every month featuring the George Weldon Quartet and special guests. The night will exist of 3 sets of jazz, guest vocalists and poets. The 3rd set invites musicians to sit in with the band for live jam sessions and collaboration. Special guest poet, Mydera SpeakMefree, will perform between jazz sets on the 13th. This show is a must for Jazz lovers!
