Jazz Bridge Third Thursday Neighborhood Concert Series on The Main Line presents Trinidelphia with Chris Aschman at The New Leaf Club—1225 Montrose Avenue in Rosemont—on Thursday, April 16. Tickets are $10, $5 for students, and are available only at the door. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Information: 215-517-8337.

This performance, and all Jazz Bridge concerts being held in the month of April, are a part of the City of Philadelphia’s “Jazz Appreciation Month” celebration, sponsored by “Creative Philadelphia,” within the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy.

Born out of street jams in Rittenhouse Square in 2005, Trinidelphia, Philadelphia’s preeminent Caribbean music ensemble, came to life. The name itself summarizes the mission of the band: to bring a unique Philadelphia twist to the steel drum music of Trinidad. Bandleader Chris Aschman (steelpan) is joined by Shawn Hennessey (vocals, guitar, percussion) to create a front line that can get any audience moving and grooving to the music. Ian Rafalak (bass) and ((Joe Truglio}} (drum set) form the rhythm section, which can handle a range of rhythmic styles, such as soca, calypso, reggae, Afro-Cuban, ska, samba, funk, and jazz. Trinidelphia has performed at a wide variety of functions, from school assemblies and parades to concerts and casino performances. Members of Trinidelphia have toured the world with many national artists in a wide variety of genres, including Chaka Kahn, Dionne Warwick, Stanley Clarke, Tina Marie, and Bill Withers.

Jazz Bridge, an award-winning nonprofit dedicated to assisting Greater Philadelphia Metro area jazz and blues musicians and vocalists in times of crisis, sponsors these neighborhood concerts throughout the region to keep the sound of Philadelphia alive.
