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

We are delighted to present a diverse evening of jazz with Derel and Ellen Monteith. Derel will be on keyboard and Ellen on vocals, along with several of the region’s best musicians. Derel was a piano prodigy as a child, and later earned a jazz degree from the University of Miami and studied composition with Maria Schneider; we regularly enjoy his work in the Derel Monteith Trio. Ellen brings alive a variety of musical styles, drawing from decades in musical theater and nightclub performances. Together with area musicians they will be performing something for everyone; jazz and blues standards, show tunes, latin and even a little R&B. You won’t want to miss this show.

The Central Illinois Jazz Society 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 or call 243-1582. Food and beverages are available for purchase at this live jazz program.
