Darke County Center for the Arts will host “A Taste of Wine and Jazz XXI” on Friday, April 29 at Montage Cafe in downtown Greenville. The wine tasting party, a fundraiser for the local arts organization, will feature food and music in addition to a selection of fine wines.
Music for the event will be provided by the Eddie Brookshire Quintet. According to DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins, this band will appeal to a broad range of listeners. “These guys are quite simply great musicians,” Rawlins stated. “They are high energy, but easy listening, jazzy, yet melodic. Everybody will enjoy their music, as well as the great food and welcoming atmosphere at Montage,” Rawlins concluded.
Eddie Brookshire plays bass, and has performed with various jazz masters including Cal Collins, Snookie Young, and David “Fathead” Newman. Trumpeter Gary Onady studied at University of Cincinnati’s Conservatory of Music and performed with jazz artists including Louis Bellson, then went on to pursue a career in medicine before returning to his roots as a musician.
Jack Novotny played saxophone, flute, and bass clarinet with various groups on the East Coast, in his home town of Cleveland, and for an extended gig at Carli’s Contemporary Cafe in San Juan, Puerto Rico before arriving in Dayton in 2008. Drummer Fenton Sparks has long been involved with musical groups in the Cincinnati, Dayton, and Columbus region, winning various awards as an outstanding percussionist. Keigo Hirakawa, keyboardist for the group, also leads his own piano trio and has won acclaim for the spontaneity he brings to performances.
Kent and Melinda Myers, R. B. Cox Insurance Agency, and Zechar Bailey Funeral Home are sponsoring the musical performance by the Eddie Brookshire Quintet. Montage proprietors Aaron and Michelle Cox will provide an enticing array of hors d’oeuvres to complement the wines they have selected for the event. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; “A Taste of Wine and Jazz XXI” closes with the awarding of door prizes at 8:30 p.m.
Tickets for “A Taste of Wine and Jazz XXI” are $30 each, and are available at Montage and at DCCA’s office on the third floor of Greenville Public Library, or can be reserved by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
