I have a friend who sees something like 16 movies in 4 days whenever the Wisconsin Film Fest comes around. I can only sit through 3 or 4 movies before I’ve had my fill; by Sunday of that weekend I’m itching to do something else. This year I already know what that’ll be: the Jazz at Five Fundraiser at the Brink Lounge. Here’s the information they sent in:
Jazz at Five to Host Annual Fundraiser April 3 at the Brink Lounge
Jazz at Five, the Midwest’s premier free live jazz concert series, is hosting its annual fundraiser on Sunday, April 3 at the Brink Lounge in Madison, Wisconsin. Featured performers include the New Breed led by saxophonist Patrick Breiner, the Tony Castaneda Sextet, and the Jazz Diva Ladies led by Gerri DiMaggio and featuring Lynnette and Sally DeBroux.
Jazz at Five is a unique, free cultural event that attracts thousands of live music fans to downtown Madison each year. The 2011 series, which will feature five nights of top regional and local jazz talent, will take place every Wednesday night from August 10 through September 7.
Jazz at Five’s annual fundraiser will be held from noon to 5:00pm at the Brink Lounge (701 East Washington Ave., Madison). Guests will enjoy live jazz music from some of Madison’s most popular jazz artists and food from the Brink Lounge’s terrific menu. There will also be a silent auction of a number of unique and valuable items, including a reserved table at a Jazz at Five 2011 performance
Advanced tickets are available for $17 and can be purchased at the Brink Lounge or from the Jazz at Five website (www.jazzatfive.org). Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $20. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to support the 2011 season of Jazz at Five.
