GSA Jazz Night w/Jeff Smith, Billy Williams & Joe Bussey

If you are in the 757 and are free this Thursday, we’d love to see you at the first-ever GSA Jazz Night featuring a very special band. Not only do I love playing with these guys, but they all have a special connection to the Governor’s School as well.

Jeff Smith was one of my first jazz instructors, and it’s been amazing to continue making music with someone who helped me take my first steps in this music.

I met Billy Williams a little later when he joined the GSA ranks, and he’s been putting up with my nonsense ever since. That’s my brother right there.

Fast forward about 20 years to meeting Joe Bussey and joining him here at the school to help bring this music to a new generation. It has been a tremendous gift to work alongside Joe and you couldn’t ask for a more swinging bass player.

I know we’re going to have a good time, and we’d love to share it with you. Come on out. Free admission. Donations certainly welcome. Hope to see you!
