The Morro Bay Chamber of Commerce is throwing a party and you are invited!

This is the first annual “Jazz at the Rock" Concert. The concert will be May 20th in Beautiful Morro Bay. Our concert featuring Frank Capp is the main event, but we will have a Founder's Dinner with the musicians Friday night. Plan to be in town for that early.

The Chamber of Commerce will raise money to pay for jazz music scholarships at Morro Bay High School and Cuesta College. We also hope to have one for Cal Poly as well. Students from Cuesta College will be playing with the Frank Capp Sextet featuring Barbara Morrison Saturday night.

Jazz at the Rock is May 20, 2006. We will be in the shadow of Morro Rock and it is guaranteed to be a great show.

Frank Capp, a flexible and consistently swinging drummer, loves to drive a big band. As leader of the Juggernaut, he got to push and inspire some of Los Angeles' best. Capp found his initial fame playing with Stan Kenton's Orchestra. Two years later, he settled in Los Angeles; became a busy studio musician; and played with everyone from Ella Fitzgerald, Harry James, and Charlie Barnet to Stan Getz, Art Pepper, and Dave Pell.

The dazzling Barbara Morrison has been featured on over 20 recordings. She has dazzled fans of a wide array of genres from traditional Jazz and Blues to Gospel and Pop. Her melodic voice, with its two-and-a-half-octave range, is known worldwide, as are her rich, unique, soulful and highly spirited interpretations of both, familiar Jazz and Blues classics and original contemporary tunes. Equally as striking is Ms. Morrison's ability to belt out down-home, soul-stirring Blues. Her impassioned renditions of old and favorite torch songs are nothing short of breathtaking.

It will be a great weekend and we hope you can plan on making it to the event.

Tickets will be available online soon.
