Q-Jazz invites the LGBTQ Community and friends the third Thursday of each month to enjoy the Basin St. Northwest Jazz Trio, complimentary apps, and piano bar hosted by friends and performance associates Dinah Urell and Walt Trumbull.
Arrive at 8pm for complimentary appetizers and catch a sampling of Basin St. NW piano trio led by Chuck Wilder, featuring guitarist Dave Drury, and bassist Todd Pederson. Urell and Trumbull dip into the American songbook, in solo and duo, and open the mic for folks who would like to sing, in the vein of American standards, jazz and blues. Expertise not required. Old school piano bar culture, with a jazz twist – the soulful progressions of pianist Chuck Wilder as your back-up is a treat.
The event, now underway, is proving to be a spacious and welcoming social gathering. Owners of the Bridgewater, Ann and Tony Kitchner welcome the community, and look forward to the event growing as a permanent monthly mixer for the Q-Community.
Third Thursdays. 8pm-10pm. The Bridgewater Bistro is located at the Port of Astoria, 20 Basin St., 503.325.6777.
