It’s time, once again, for “Jazz at the PUB,” the regularly scheduled, informal concert given by the Peninsula College Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Dr. David P. Jones.
This free event is open to the public and is from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 2, in the Pirate Union Building on Peninsula College’s main campus, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.
The Peninsula College Jazz Ensemble has grown to a complete band: six saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones and a full rhythm section — piano, guitar, bass, drums and two percussionists — along with vocalist Robbin Eaves.
The event features swing standards by George Gershwin, Jerome Kern and Artie Shaw in addition to compositions by Jimmy Van Heusen, Thelonious Monk, Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter and Les Hooper. Eaves brings her unique vocal stylings to the performance including “Love Is Here to Stay,” “Little Boat” and a Nat King Cole favorite, “Hit That Jive, Jack.”
The repertoire covers eight decades of jazz and popular music. The band’s performers come from Sequim, Port Angeles, Joyce and Port Townsend, and the ensemble is directed by Jones, head of the music program at P.C.
