Next After Hours concert to feature jazz

South Portland Public Library invites the public to an After Hours concert that features the jazzy Hadacol Bouncers at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 11 at the Main Library and includes New Orleans and Chicago style jazz.

The Hadacol Bouncers formed in summer 2013 for a Portland Swing Dance festival and have never looked back. They have continued association with the dance crowd and are always looking to play for dancers. This unique, upbeat, toe-tapping group plays a hybrid of New Orleans jazz, Chicago style jazz and stride piano classics. Featuring a traditional lineup of banjo/tenor guitar, piano, tuba, drums, trombone, soprano sax/clarinet and trumpet/cornet, the music is fresh and bright.

Core members of the group include Peter Dunphy on banjo, guitar and vocals; Tom Whitehead on piano, accordion and steel guitar; Bill Rayne on trombone and vocals; Tom Wilbur on tuba; Ray Sapirstein on cornet; and Don Whitney on drums.

After Hours shows are held outside of the library’s usual hours of operation, and as such, regular library services are not available during these programs. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Space is limited.

The program is made possible through the support of Friends of the South Portland Public Library, and admission is free. For more information, call 767-7660, ext. 2.
