BMS Jazz Series: Brian Woodruff
September 8 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm| Free
Kick off your weekends right this September: join Brooklyn Music School for a series of live, outdoor, “happy hour” concerts on three Fridays this month.
Faculty from the venerable neighborhood institution — who are musicians and bandleaders in their own right — will entertain with jazz standards and new material at a fabulous Fort Greene location, 7-Corners. And if you have musical chops, you’re invited to jam along with them!
First up is drummer Brian Woodruff, the Percussion Chair at BMS. Woodruff began drum lessons at age nine and counts Cuban son and mambo, New Orleans jazz and Haitian kompa as influences on his style. He has performed with Oscar Perez and Kuriko Tsugawa in the OKB Trio, and at venues such as the Kennedy Center. Be ready to jam along with Brian and get the BMS Jazz Series started!
