On Saturday night, June 1, 2013, Friday Harbor Laboratories will hold its 13th annual Jazz at the Labs, an evening of great food, a silent auction and GREAT MUSIC at the Friday Harbor Labs. All proceeds from Jazz at the Labs will benefit the Friday Harbor Laboratories K-12 Science Outreach Program in the San Juan Island Elementary, Middle and High Schools and the Spring Street International School.
Doors open at 5:30 for previewing the auction items. Dinner will begin at 6 pm and will be accompanied by the San Juan Jazz Quintet, with special guest, Hawk Arps on the vibraphone. SJJQ has entertained audiences in the PNW since 1990, playing standards, swing, bebop, originals and latin jazz. You can also find them regularly playing at the Rumor Mill restaurant in Friday Harbor.
Following SJJQ, once again, you’ll be delighted by the fabulous Jazz Coalescence from Seattle. Chris Amemiya, scientist and musician extraordinaire, gathers some of the finest jazz musicians in the northwest for this special night.
Emcee for the evening is KPLU Jazz host, Dick Stein. Farhad Ghatan will also join us to help with the silent auction and our Fund-a-Need effort.
Admission: Tickets: $40 per person, includes dinner and music. We recommend that you call 360-378-2165 ext. 0 to make your reservation in advance!
