|July 14 SCJS Concert: Jerry Zee & Co.|
Jerry Zee & Co., one of Brevard’s busiest bands, will headline the Space Coast Jazz Society concert from 2 to 4:30 PM Sunday, July 14, at the Cocoa Beach Country Club.
Zee, an electric guitarist from central New York, has performed for years in house bands at prestigious restaurants all over Central Florida. He plays all genres of music and promises to put together a first-rate jazz and swing program for his SCJS gig.
His band for July 14 includes Steve Mazzi, two-time winner of Brevard Live Magazine's Favorite Saxophonist award. Mazzi plays all saxes and flute and does vocals as well. Zee and Mazzi perform every week at the Sunday Jazz Brunch at City Tropics Bistro’s in Melbourne.
Jerry Zee is fulfilling his life-long dream of being a working musician. He plays regularly at restaurants and clubs as a duo, trio or larger.
Tickets for the July 14 concert will be on sale at the door. The tickets are $7 for members of the SCJS, $10 for nonmembers and free for students. Doors open at 1 PM. Food and drink are available. The Cocoa Beach Country Club is at 5000 Tom Warriner Blvd. in Cocoa Beach.
|Aug. 11: Good Times Band back for 5th time.|
Get ready to tap your toes again to the music of clarinetist Fred Case and his Good Times Jazz Band. The Dixieland quintet will headline an SCJS concert for the fifth year in a row from 2 to 4:30 PM on Aug. 11 at the Cocoa Beach Country Club. That's Fred kneeling in the photo with clarinet.
Tickets at the door: $7 for SCJS members, $10 for nonmembers an no charge for students.
These musicians have played at Walt Disney World, on the paddle-wheeled cruise ships on the Mississippi, in New Orleans jazz clubs and as members of Rosie O’Grady’s Good Times Band at Church Street in Orlando when it was the best place in town to hear Dixieland music.
In the past four years, the band has won high praise from SCJS audiences. There has always been a long standing ovation at the end of the show.
“We defy you to keep still even for a few seconds,” Case says, “when this energetic, toe-tapping music starts up.”
