St Ben's 17th Annual Jazz Concert
Sunday, August 17, 3 pm

St. Benedict's Jazz Concert, established by our wonderful member/pianist Edd Richards, is celebrating 17 years of top notch jazz music. Edd is no longer with us, but his spirit lives on with the help of his loyal friends. Darrell Voss, leader of the Real Time Jazz Band, performed with Edd for many years and has been a great support to St. Ben's in keeping the beat going. This year, on Sunday, August 17, at 3 p.m., an afternoon of jazz, great food, vintage wine, and water is promised with the wonderful vocalist Inga Swearingen. Tickets are $40 and will be available from Boo Boo Records in San Luis Obispo and from the Abundance Shop in Los Osos. You can also call Diana Hammerlund at (805) 471-6759 for Will Call tickets.
