Perps are Back in Baltimore!

Posted: March 16, 2018 in Latest News

Spring is around the corner and so is the Jazz Perpetrators’ next performance in Baltimore. Join them as they make their second appearance on Friday, March 23rd at Bookmakers Cocktail Club, a sophisticated cocktail and supper club located 31 East Cross St. in the heart of Federal Hill.

Starting at 9pm, the Perps will deliver their patented “high spirits, low volume” approach to jazz that won’t hurt your ears or make you wonder what happened to the melody. Sterling Dorn (aka Mister Smooth), the Perp’s regular vocalist will be sitting this one out, but the Perps look forward to sharing the stage with vocalist and trombonist extraordinaire, Mike Overholser — another horn AND vocals, what more can you ask for!

If you’re ready for a warm up in the weather, get your Spring on with a relaxing evening out with the Perps as they welcome the return of the sun, flowers and yard work, well, maybe not that…come on out!

Bookmakers is located right on the south side of E. Cross Street, between Light and S. Charles Street. Easy to get to, but – with all the fine food, drink and music – hard to leave.

See you there!

The Jazz Perpetrators will be in “do good” mode as they provide music to sip & swing by for this year’s edition of the Goshen Farm Java & Jazz fund raiser on Sunday, March 11.

The event will take place at the Cape St. Claire Clubhouse, 1223 River Bay Road in Cape St. Claire (Annapolis 21409) and will run from 3 to 5 pm. Attendees will enjoy a wide selection of mouth-watering goodies and hot & cold beverages, along with the Perps’ patented “high spirits, low volume” musical entertainment.

Last year’s “Specialty Farm House” Coffees (two specialty coffee drinks made with locally sourced ingredients) were such a hit that they’re on the menu again this year. Come taste what you can’t get at a chain coffee shop:

First up (alphabetically) is Farmhouse Moonshine Coffee, which has Lyon’s Corn Whiskey, Bar Keep lavender organic bitters, with coffee and chicory topped with whipped honey-sweetened cream.

Second is Plowman’s Tonic, which features Lyons Dark Rum, Godiva Chocolate (no local source for chocolate liqueur), muddled mint leaf, and whipped honey-sweetened cream. Both will be available for $5.00 each.

All proceeds and donations go to support the historic Goshen Farm preservation project, so come on out for a relaxing afternoon of good food and music to support a good cause.  Admission is free but donations are welcome. See you there!

It’s a new year, and along with it comes a new venue for the Jazz Perpetrators. Join them as they make their Baltimore debut on Saturday, January 6th at Bookmakers Cocktail Club, a sophisticated  cocktail and supper club located 31 East Cross St. in the heart of Federal Hill.

Starting at 9pm, the Perps will deliver their patented “high spirits, low volume” approach to jazz that won’t hurt your ears or make you wonder what happened to the melody. And with vocalist Sterling Dorn (aka Mister Smooth), the band’s music is even more listener friendly than ever.

Now that you’ve survived the holidays and all that shopping/traveling hustle & bustle, reward yourself with a relaxing evening out with the Perps as they help smooth your way back into the groove; it’s the present you owe yourself.

This Friday, August 11, marks the final installment of the Jazz Perpetrators’ monthly residency at the John Barry Pub in the O’Callaghan Hotel in Annapolis. The hotel has recently been sold and will be closing in the fall for renovations. As usual, the fun will start at 7:30 and go to 11-ish.

The Perps have enjoyed their extended run at the Pub and would like to say for the record that they had nothing to do with any of the damage done to Room 310 and that no one in the band even owns a chain saw or flare gun. It must have been Keith Moon and/or Elvis Presley, both of whom suspiciously continue to remain mum about their whereabouts on the date of the incident.

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.

Look for the Perps soon at other neighboring locales; until then, we’ll see you Friday!

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!
