Welcome to the Coronavirus Social Distancing Series Produced by Gregory Burrus Around Town. Put together to help our musicians, fans, the community stay connected since we can’t be there in person. Everyday somebody new from all the Gregory Burrus Around Town Events.
Enjoy All. Tonight we are enjoying Friends of Myrna Bain Scholarship hosted by our buddy Sherry Gibson who puts on a great fundraising benefit every year.
April 3rd in honor of Jazz Appreciation Month – we flash back to Myrna Bain Scholarship Benefit performers Sue Rock and Dambrose Boyd. These cats just knocked it out of the park.
Have to admit I am a big fan of Sue Rock after this performance as she was my favorite performer of the night. Hopefully one day she will come sing out here in 24 Hours of Music.
