April Tour 3/30 through 4/9 - New Orleans Jazz Fest 4/29 through 5/7 - Race Riot Suite World Premier 5/20

As we type this email the pre-tour flurry of activity is in full swing, running around Tulsa getting the van and trailer serviced, equipment repaired, etc.  Tour kicks off on Wednesday at Crosstown Station in Kansas City, MO and then makes stops in St.Louis, Cleveland, and Kalamazoo, before wrapping up with two nights opening for the Greyboy Allstars at the Double Door in Chicago.    

We're very pleased to announce that the World Premier performance of the Race Riot Suite will be presented by the Tulsa Performing Arts Center Trust on May 20th in the John H. Williams Theatre at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center.  Click here to watch the video teaser , which features an early listen to music off the upcoming album.  To purchase tickets call (918) 596-7111, go online to MyTicketOffice.com, or visit the box office at 3rd & Cincinnati in Downtown Tulsa.

The premier will feature the JFJO quartet plus the same horn quintet that is featured on the forthcoming album release.  The quintet features Jeff Coffin on Saxophone (Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, Dave Matthews Band), Steven Bernstein on Trumpet (Sex Mob, Levon Helm), Peter Apfelbaum on Saxophone (Don Cherry), Mark Southerland on Saxophone (Snuff Jazz), & Matt Leland on Trombone  (a founding JFJO member).  We'll also be playing with many of these friends in New Orleans during Jazz Fest.  See all the tour dates below.
