robert-hartThe Santa Barbara Jazz Society is pleased to present “The Robert Hart Project” at SOhO on October 30 from 1 to 4pm. As an artist, Robert incorporates an eclectic blend of musical genres into a hip, melodic, and syncopated style that is uniquely his own; then weaves in a few of his original compositions, creating a fresh, exciting experience for the audience. Robert is a vocalist, saxophonist, pianist, flautist, bassist, composer, engineer, producer, arranger and sequencing specialist with a recording studio that he built at his home in the Santa Ynez Valley. He has appeared on television and in clubs in LA and Orange County and on a cross country tour. In Las Vegas he produced and arranged music while performing as a saxophonist and lead vocalist for groups. Joining Robert are some of our finest local musicians: Jeff Elliott – trumpet, Maitland Ward – guitar, Randy Tico – bass, John Enrico Douglas – piano, and Darrell Voss – drums.

Admission for the concert is $15 for Jazz Society members, $25 for non-members, and $5 for full time students and local jazz musicians with membership. Cash or check only. We hope you can join us for a memorable afternoon of great jazz.

There are no reservations. Members will be admitted first and seating is limited so plan to arrive early. Tickets are available ONLY at the door and doors open at 12:30. For more information, please call 805.687.7123.
