ASTORIA — Partners for the PAC is thrilled to bring Astoria audiences an evening of “Unexpected Amenities.” This concert of stellar jazz played by world-class musicians will take place 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3, at the Performing Arts Center (588 16th St.).

Admission is $15 at the door. Children under 12 get in free with an adult.

On hand will be guitarist David Drury, with three Portland musicians: bassist Dave Captein, drummer Charlie Doggett and saxophonist Rob Davis.

“Unexpected amenities” refers to the very essence of jazz — improvisation — and to the exciting sounds that come out of that. Each performance is unique, reflecting a one-time-only synergy that promises a memorable night of music.

Proceeds will benefit the Performing Arts Center. As another unexpected amenity, Astoria vocalist Dinah Urell will sing a few tunes.

These musicians will take the audience on a musical tour of modern, mainstream and contemporary jazz. Drury will perform some of his own compositions, encompassing jazz, rock, classical, funk, even some R&B.

A bonafide local legend, Drury began playing guitar professionally in the early 1960s.

Captein was inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame in 2015 and currently teaches privately at Lewis and Clark College.

Doggett’s music has taken him all over the U.S. and to Canada and Europe. He’s been part of Portland’s jazz scene for more than a decade.

Davis has performed and recorded with such luminaries as Jay Thomas, the Jim Knapp Orchestra, the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra and Matthew Jorgensen.

This concert is supported by a grant from the Clatsop County Cultural Coalition and the Oregon Cultural Trust. For more information, visit supportthepac.org.
