Getting Jazzy + Funky with Some Words: Live Music Saturday in Santa Monica
What is Jazz Funk Fest? Imagine an evening of poetry and spoken word performance accompanied by improvisational live musicians in the Beat poetry tradition. This collective is known as Rag’n’Bones. Then add in a rotating selection of local Venice bands including mainstays Black Shoe Polish plus Eric Ahlberg, Freddie Ginns and Sam Clay playing a mix of originals and classic blues/jazz/funk songs.
This month’s (June) helping of Rag’n’Bones will feature performers Tryg Hanson and Paulie D. backed up by musicians Gerry Fialka, Alex Soschin and Ralph Loynachan. That’s the melting pot of mastery and misfits that makes up the Jazz Funk Fest.
