Description
The Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston concludes its 21st year of **free** summer outdoor concerts at Reeves Little League Field, 9 North Main St., Thomaston. The corporate sponsor for the Summer Concert Series is the Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation. Each concert runs 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. The August 12th concert features newcomers, **_Sally & the Green Jazz Band!_** Sally Terrell (vocals/piano) began a lifelong love affair with piano and singing at age six, poking out melodies alongside her father, a classically trained pianist and jazz aficionado who passed along his love of George Gershwin, Errol Garner and Julie London while discovering his youngest daughter could play and sing by ear. Terrell’s intuitive interpretations and razor-sharp ear showcase a velvety alto that can effortlessly soothe and soar. She and partner John Sarlo formed the Green Jazz Band. Mike Milner (horns) started playing with big bands in his early teens, sharing the stage with Maynard Ferguson, Mercer Ellington and Lionel Hampton. After performing with rock, reggae, top 40 and funk bands, Mike is excited about returning to his jazz roots. Kevin O’Neil (guitar) joined the band in 2015. He is a seasoned performer whose world tour and recordings with the legendary saxophonist and NEA Jazz Master Anthony Braxton established him as a force in avant-garde jazz. John Sarlo (bass) performed with rock and top 40 bands and has found his true home in playing standards. Reeves Field is handicap accessible. The Little League Café will be open for food and snacks. Bring your lawn chair or blanket, leave your alcohol at home, sit back and enjoy the wonder of live music! In the event of inclement weather, the concerts will be held at Thomaston High School, 185 Branch Road (Route 109), which is also handicap-accessible.
