Peanut Butter & Jazz

Seaun Carney Blues band, with special guest Gene "King Saxe" Walker, played for an hour at the Peanut Butter and Jazz (PB&J) concert at the Lincoln Theatre earlier this morning. To the delight of all kids and parents present, the band played tunes including Oreo Cookie Blues and Chewing Gum Blues.

In the photo above, the group and audience digging the scene. Below that, Cordy, sitting next to her bubbe and obviously enjoying it, is a veteran of more than three years at these PB&J concerts, while Mira, very relaxed,  sleeps on bubbe's lap. 

Kids get treated to a peanut-butter sandwich, chocolate chip cookies and orange juice while they listen to some of Columbus' best blues and jazz musicians. This program, originated by Becky Ogden several years ago, brings kids and parents together for an activity all enjoy. The goal is to educate a younger audience to the rich heritage of Blues and Jazz. The place was packed to the gills. Kids and adults had a great time!

Next one is on Valentine's Day (Feb. 14) Music starts at 11 sharp. Come early to get a a good seat and goodies.
