John Miller and The Romaniacs perform a “gypsy jazz” style of music and are a very popular group with the Jazz Society attendees. John Miller leads the Romaniacs on guitar and provides interesting narratives about the music and about Django Reinhardt, the composer of many of their tunes. Joining John were Randy Emert on bass, Joe Park on guitar, and Larry Harms on clarinet. We welcomed the Romaniacs and hope they are able to return for a Jazz Society concert.
The Central Illinois Jazz Society (CIJS) House Band will play during the first set, under the leadership of Larry Harms - sax
. The CIJS House Band features outstanding jazz musicians from the area. They will present a mixture of jazz styles. For more information visit www.cijs.org or call 243-1582. Food and beverages are available for purchase at this live jazz program.
