Join PCA’s second season of Open Jazz Jam with Marcia J. Macres as your host and the Jazz Punishers and friends as the house band.
These afternoon sessions start with the Jazz Punishers playing a few tunes, and then the stage will be open to musicians to sit in and play/sing jazz standards with the Jazz Punishers.
Bring your instrument and charts (if not a jazz standard), or just come and listen. There will be a sign-up sheet at the door. Marcia will have wipes and mic covers for vocalists.
$5 cash cover charge (for performers and attendees). BYOB!
The Jazz Punishers band ( consists of seasoned jazz musicians:
Jason Macres – saxophones
Jim Zaroulis – keyboard/piano
Ed Spargo – bass
Steve Bankuti – drums
Marcia J. Ridings Macres – vocals
Tonight’s jam features Alex Barry on trumpet. Whether you’re a jazz music listener, instrumentalist or vocalist, you are welcome to come and be surrounded by great music.

The PCA is handicap accessible to get into the building, with an outdoor lift that needs to have one person on the inside to operate. Once inside, there are four steps up to the stage level. If you need to use the lift, need a mic stand set up on the floor level because you cannot make it up the stairs to the stage, or need more information about the Jazz Jam, please contact Marcia J. Macres at marcia@
