The Jost Project will perform in the intimate Owen Salon overlooking Prince Street to launch our 2015-16 Jazz in the Sky series. All tickets include complimentary beverage service which begins at 7:00 PM with concerts beginning at 7:30 PM.

Jazz in the Sky presents The Jost Project on Oct 9. The Jost Project brings new generations to jazz by playing the music of the 60’s and 70’s – the great classic rock of Aerosmith, Led Zepellin, the Beatles, Iron Butterfly and many others. They are internationally renowned vibraphonist Tony Miceli, vocalist/harmonist Paul Jost, bassist Kevin MacConnell and drummer Marko Marcinko. In Jazz in Europe, the critic wrote, “The Jost Project is, without a doubt, one of the most creative bands I have heard in years.”
