- Ken Gehret has played at Clay on Main twice before, once with Rich Dodson, once with Dave Kline. This time, he returns as full-strength, undiluted Kenny. For those of you who have seen this masterful multi-instrumentalist and songwriter perform, he needs no introduction. For those unfortunates who have not seen and heard Kenny strut his stuff… get ready. Clay on Main hosts a lot of Country, Alt-Country, Singer/Songwriter, and cover artists (and Ken can and does play all of that stuff), but not so much Jazz or Classical (both which Ken plays masterfully). This evening, Ken will delight those who already love Jazz with things that are just not possible on guitar. Even those who are not so sure they like Jazz will come away from this evening pretty sure they do. Learn more about Ken!
- Dining Room (Pre-show): Berks Works – Berks Works is a newly formed jazz trio made up of three talented high school musicians. Cormick Costello (bass), Jeffrey Dalton (drums), and Isaiah Nygard (piano) have been playing in various jazz combos in Berks County and the Lehigh Valley before forming Berks Works. Members of the trio have been part of District 10 Jazz Band, the University of the Arts High School All Star Big Band, and the Pennsylvania All-State Jazz Band. They’ve shared the stage with jazz greats Randy Brecker, Eric Marianthal, and Albert Riveira, to name a few. This group, serving up some tasty tune-age, is the perfect appetizer — you will certainly want more.
