Looking Ahead:

Tri-State Jazz All Stars

Cornetist Ben Mauger returns to Tri-State with his six-piece Vintage Jazz Band, playing those good ole tunes from the 1920s and '30s, as well as the Swing-NYC-style revival jazz made famous in the '50s and '60s. His last performance for Tri-State was in October, 2016. With their home base in central Pennsylvania, Ben's groups have become mainstays at prestige jazz venues and festivals up and down the East Coast. Get yourself to Wallingford on June 2 for an afternoon of high-octane, knock-your-socks-off, traditional jazz!
