 Calendar Details:

Premier jazz saxophonist Robert “Bootsie” Barnes has been proclaimed a Philadelphia treasure.  Today, “Bootsie” Barnes is known as “the man with the ‘Tenor Touch’ because of his dynamic style on the tenor saxophone.  His smooth and distinct sound is easily recognizable whether softly caressing a ballad, or swinging hard, during live performances or on CD. Tickets sold at the door- $10 for adults, $5 for students, free to children under age 12!

Now in its 9th year at the Cheltenham Center for the arts, Jazz Bridge is a non-profit arts organization serving a need no one else is addressing in the Philadelphia area: responding to local jazz and blues artists in times of need. Proceeds from the neighborhood concert series go to help local jazz musicians in personal or professional crisis. Concerts feature prominent jazz and blues musicians during an hour and a half long program which includes a Q&A with the artists and light refreshments. Check out our website to learn more about each performer.
