The third installment of our fall Real Jazz Series, occurring every second Tuesday, is back this week. This month, Blue Sofa Orchestra (formerly R.G. Watkins & Friends) will be joining us for what is guaranteed to be another night of great jazz music featuring a group of extremely talented musicians!
Blue Sofa Orchestra (formerly R.G. Watkins & Friends) is a long time member of the Brazos Valley jazz scene. For the past six years, the band has served as the house band for jazz at The Frame Gallery in Downtown Bryan for First Fridays and Texas A&M University events and concerts. The band consists of Bill Clark on guitar, Laurie Clark on vocals, Richard Kent on horn, Conrad Guthrie on bass, and Randy Watkins on drums. Bill Clark, one of the performers at our first installment of Real Jazz in September, has been playing jazz guitar for over three decades. He has also studied jazz performance at William Paterson College with world-renowned guitarists. Clark is also the Head of the Political Science department at Texas A&M. Clark and his group of extremely talented musicians bring decades of jazz experience to each show they play. Each member’s individual talent paired with over six years of playing jazz music together makes for an exciting jazz music experience.
Take a step back in time with us this week and join us for jazz, swing, blues, bossa, and more. Come early and enjoy Craft Beer and Cocktails served by Cody Schilling!
