• Dave Hoffman and Friends [details]
Dave Hoffman and Friends on Sunday at four in the afternoon, Westminster Presbyterian Church, Peoria has inaugurated a new Jazz Vesper service with Dave Hoffman and various friends filling the church with everything from cool to hot jazz in praise of God. Dave doesn’t water anything down, so we hear the best of his art in this service of worship.
Vespers are a very old tradition in the Christian Church. The form is simple with Scripture, Prayers and music … along with a short Homily (sermon). It is a forty minute service, keeping it within the bounds of possibility for even younger children. We hope it will truly become a way to bridge all age groups … worshipping together each week.

Jazz Nights in the Heights at Trailside Event Center, second floor of Trefzger's Bakery, 4416 N. Prospect Road, Peoria Heights.

Thelonious Monk (1917-1982) is one of the most beloved and delightfully original pianists and composers in jazz history. Monk helped invent modern jazz back in the 1940s, and he would be one hundred years old if he were alive today. The Central Illinois Jazz Society is pleased to present a centennial tribute to Thelonious Monk by devoting the entire concert to his work and memory. Derel Monteith will lead an evening of Monk compositions from the piano and will be joined by Larry Harms on saxophone, Edgar Crockett on trumpet, Nikki Whittaker Malley on vibraphone, Andy Crawford on bass, and Jason Brannon on drums.
