Sunday, April 14th, 2-4pm
JOEL GREENBLATT and RISING STARS 2.0
Celebrating Jazz Appreciation Month
Rockledge Country Club, 1591 S. Fiske Blvd., Rockledge, FL 32955

Joel Greenblatt, band leader, professional trombonist and jazz promoter is featuring local jazz icons on the same stage as Brevard’s up and coming artists. Greenblatt says: “The concert will be like young meets old as we celebrate the lineage of jazz in Brevard County. It will be a true celebration of life, love, and jazz in Brevard County.” The concert program will also include a selection from the Ella Fitzgerald songbook as a tribute to the Queen.

Greenblatt’s Rising Stars initiative supports the next generation of jazz musicians in Brevard County. “Several young artists have used the previous 2013 Rising Star concert to jumpstart their careers,” says Greenblatt, such as pianist Mason Margot and guitarist Matt Heister.

Rising Stars 2.0 will feature:
Phil Coe – guitar
Bob Ditota – bass
Bryan Gardenour – drums
Lori Hafer – vocals
Lettie Andrade – vocals
Kristin Warren – vocals
Krystal Clarke – vocals
Chase Sheelee – vocals
Michael Mirand – vocals
Joel Greenblatt – trombone

Andrew Cleaver – sax
Robert Delaney – trombone
Aidan Cleaver – trombone
Dr. Jazz – clarinet

Greenblatt has studied and taught jazz for more than 30 years. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, toured with the Max Romeo Band and entertained guests of Carnival and Celebrity cruises. Since moving to Florida in 2005, he has started two professional jazz groups — the Jazz Cats and the Space Coast Big Band, which have performed in Brevard County and throughout Central Florida.
