The Paul Keller Orchestra invites a variety of middle school, high school and college jazz bands from all over the state to join them on the jazz big band Mondays at Zal Gaz Grotto. Last year 25 different jazz bands participated in the Outreach Program. The bands perform during the first set intermission.
These sessions are rewarding and memorable for the student musicians, the pros and audience members alike.
" I wanted to say Thank You, again, for a wonderful evening last Monday (3.28.16) with the Tappan Jazz Band, families, and friends. Your band (PKO) sounded great and was welcoming and inspirational. The Tappan Jazz Band students participated in an experience they will never forget. What a wonderful night in our Ann Arbor town of fantastic live jazz from everyone."
