Martini Lounge presents September Jazz Series


Special to The Sun

EDMOND — The Martini Lounge, at 505 S. Broadway in Edmond, will feature University of Central Oklahoma jazz students and faculty performing Thursday evenings as a part of its first September Jazz Series.

Performances will be from 6-7:15 p.m. and are free and open to the public.

Performers include saxophonist Jared Cathey and drummer Bill Repavich, along with Central music faculty member Michael Geib on bass. The group will perform a series of jazz standards.

The Martini Lounge will offer complimentary appetizers and a special drink called the “Jazz-tini.” With each “Jazz-tini” sold, $1 will be donated to the UCO Jazz Studies division.

“We welcome the opportunity to join forces with UCO. The talent of artists that play at the UCO Jazz Lab and the students is truly exceptional,” said Margaret Holloway, general manager of Boulevard Steakhouse/Martini Lounge.
