Terry and the Pirates
SATURDAY, April 2 - 20224:00 pm
This band was formed in 2000 at the request of the Directors of the Mammoth Lakes (CA) Jazz Festival. All of the members had played the festival but with other bands. The band had one rehearsal and realized there was something very special happening with the group.
The group was very well received at the festival but, since the members all had other projects going, decided to not pursue further festival bookings. Fast forward to 2018. The people at the Suncoast Festival in Clearwater heard about the group and asked to play there. The band was a hit there and were then asked to play the Elkhart (IN) Jazz Festival in 2019. That, too, was a great success. Everything was put on hold in 2020 due to Covid, but now the members are exploring new opportunities for the group. They know the audiences will enjoy the free-wheeling, no-holds-barred approach this group uses to put a fresh face on traditional jazz and swing.
