The PRJC Annual Jazz Picnic, with three great bands!
In partnership the Workhouse Arts Center, presenting three jazz bands!

     Saturday, September 17, 2016, 12-6pm
at the Workhouse Arts Center, 9518 Workhouse Way Lorton, VA

It is almost here... the PRJC Annual Jazz Picnic at the Workhouse Art Center or WAC, for short. The PRJC picnic features 3 trad jazz bands, each playing a 2-hour set.

The first band to take the stage will be the Starvation Army Band, featuring Brian Priebe on trombone, was founded in 1989 as an offshoot of the Columbia Concert Band specializing in Dixieland jazz. The second band will be Laissez Foure, fronted by reedman Ken Mathews; and the third band taking the stage will be the Dixie Power Trio (plus 3). While the former 2 bands may be new to most of you; they will bring the same level of excitement as the Dixie Power Trio, which has played for the club for the past 20 years or so.

The Arts Center is located south of the Beltway, just off I-95 (about a mile or so from the Occoquan exit). It is easy to get to even for attendees venturing from Maryland. This year's venerable annual picnic promises to be a whole lotta fun!

Featured bands and approximate times:
12:00pm - The Starvation Army Band, followed by
2:00pm - Laissez Foure and
4:00pm - The Dixie Power Trio!

  Admission: PRJC and WAP members ($20), General admission ($22.50 in advance, $25 at the door), non-member Senior discount $22 at door, Youth with valid student IDs (Free). Doors will open at 11am.

Bring your picnic or purchase food and beverage at the venue. Picnic tables on site, under a large tent, and hopefully a makeshift dance floor this year. Please note that the venue does not permit outside alcoholic beverages.
