Dave Greer's Classic Jazz Stompers
Sun Oct 10, 2-5 pm ~ Clintonville Woman's Club

3951 N High St, Columbus, OH
A long-time favorite with both listeners and dancers, Dave Greer and his Classic Jazz Stompers from the Dayton area has been delighting audiences at home and abroad since the late 1980's. We're pleased to have them back for our October show!

Please Note! New COVID admission policy:
Like most other events + venues these days, we're asking people to bring proof of full vaccination (or a negative COVID test within 48 hours) and a photo ID. We understand that not everybody's happy about this. Seems next-to-impossible to find a way to put on an event and keep everybody happy, comfortable, and safe. Sure sorry about the trouble. We'd love to see you!

The Band: Dave Greer on tenor guitar + banjo, with Erik Greiffenhagen on reeds, Chris Moore on cornet, and Bill Gemmer on trombone. The rhythm section is Jim Leslie on drums, Brian Cashwell on piano, and Chris Berg on string bass.

Dave Greer show admission is DOWN $10 for this show.
COHJS and SwingColumbus Members now $5 ... General Admission now $10
Music educators + music students FREE! All other students $5
