Staying Cool with the Perps

Posted: July 10, 2017 in Uncategorized

The Jazz Perpetrators were faced with a choice: pay their musical debt to society either by picking up trash along the highway in the heat of the day or by playing jazz in the cool of the evening. Taking the advice of their entertainment lawyer, the band opted for the latter option while retaining the option to heat things up over the course of the evening.

The Perps will make their monthly appearance at the John Barry Pub this Friday, July 14. The fun starts at 7:30 and goes to 11pm or whenever their parole officer shows up. Once again their special vocalist Sterling Dorn will make with the singin’ & the dancin’ & the swingin’ & the swayin’ as he adds his special touch to the band’s entertaining blend of jazz classics and smooth R&B.

The pub is at street level in the O’Callaghan Hotel located at 174 West Street near downtown Annapolis. The hotel is just a short stroll along West Street from Church Circle, and if you’re driving, take advantage of the free valet parking in the hotel’s private lot.

Stay cool and see you Friday!

Perps Honkin’ for the Holidays

Posted: December 7, 2016 in Uncategorized

Come join your favorite musical miscreants, the Jazz Perpetrators, this Sunday, December 11, for their last monthly jazz-a-ma-tazz of the year at the John Barry Restaurant and Pub in the O’Callaghan Hotel in Annapolis. The music will kick off around 7:30 pm, and you can probably expect to hear a few seasonal ditties along with the smooth jazz and R&B tunes the Perps are known for.

Forget those crowds at the mall and the search for the latest kiddie-pleaser at Toys R Us and sit back and relax to the sounds that make reindeer wanna fly down to the islands and kick back jazzy_santawith their hooves in the sand.

The hotel and pub are located at 174 West Street, just a few blocks west of Church Circle near downtown Annapolis. And forget about parking hassles, the restaurant offers free valet parking in the rear.

See you on Sunday!

Perps – Late in the Evening

Posted: November 3, 2016 in Uncategorized

The Perps’ next monthly jazz-a-ma-tazz, to be held this Sunday, November 6, at the John Barry Restaurant and Pub in the O’Callaghan Hotel in Annapolis, will be starting a little later than usual. This new start time (8 o’clock) has been necessitated by an altercation with the nefarious Jazz Police. Seems that one of the Perps was ALLEGEDLY – we repeat “ALLEGEDLY” – caught playing “Take 5” on four trash cans in the alley behind Blues Alley in the middle of the day during a weekday. This – IF true – is an infraction of several Jazz Tenets: 1) no playing in the daytime; 2) never play in 5/4 without warning everyone within earshot; 3) never get caught in an alley (Blues or otherwise) unless you’re drunk or shooting up.

As punishment for this infraction, this particular Perp has been assigned to play at an all-day polka marathon at an Überstumpfentanzentrinkenfest which will cause him to arrive later than the normal 7 pm start time for the Perps gig. The only way he could get to the gig on time would be if he didn’t stop to change out of his lederhosen, knee socks, and tyrolean hat, which he has refused to do. The band and their musicians-union-appointed lawyer apologize for this delayed start time but if it’s any consolation, the case is still under appeal.

The hotel and pub are located at 174 West Street, just a few blocks west of Church Circle near downtown Annapolis. And forget about parking hassles, the restaurant offers free valet parking in the rear.

See you on Sunday with an eight o’clock start!
