Perps are Back in Baltimore!

Posted: March 16, 2018 in Latest News

Spring is around the corner and so is the Jazz Perpetrators’ next performance in Baltimore. Join them as they make their second appearance on Friday, March 23rd at Bookmakers Cocktail Club, a sophisticated cocktail and supper club located 31 East Cross St. in the heart of Federal Hill.

Starting at 9pm, the Perps will deliver their patented “high spirits, low volume” approach to jazz that won’t hurt your ears or make you wonder what happened to the melody. Sterling Dorn (aka Mister Smooth), the Perp’s regular vocalist will be sitting this one out, but the Perps look forward to sharing the stage with vocalist and trombonist extraordinaire, Mike Overholser — another horn AND vocals, what more can you ask for!

If you’re ready for a warm up in the weather, get your Spring on with a relaxing evening out with the Perps as they welcome the return of the sun, flowers and yard work, well, maybe not that…come on out!

Bookmakers is located right on the south side of E. Cross Street, between Light and S. Charles Street. Easy to get to, but – with all the fine food, drink and music – hard to leave.

See you there!

The Jazz Perpetrators will be in “do good” mode as they provide music to sip & swing by for this year’s edition of the Goshen Farm Java & Jazz fund raiser on Sunday, March 11.

The event will take place at the Cape St. Claire Clubhouse, 1223 River Bay Road in Cape St. Claire (Annapolis 21409) and will run from 3 to 5 pm. Attendees will enjoy a wide selection of mouth-watering goodies and hot & cold beverages, along with the Perps’ patented “high spirits, low volume” musical entertainment.

Last year’s “Specialty Farm House” Coffees (two specialty coffee drinks made with locally sourced ingredients) were such a hit that they’re on the menu again this year. Come taste what you can’t get at a chain coffee shop:

First up (alphabetically) is Farmhouse Moonshine Coffee, which has Lyon’s Corn Whiskey, Bar Keep lavender organic bitters, with coffee and chicory topped with whipped honey-sweetened cream.

Second is Plowman’s Tonic, which features Lyons Dark Rum, Godiva Chocolate (no local source for chocolate liqueur), muddled mint leaf, and whipped honey-sweetened cream. Both will be available for $5.00 each.

All proceeds and donations go to support the historic Goshen Farm preservation project, so come on out for a relaxing afternoon of good food and music to support a good cause.  Admission is free but donations are welcome. See you there!

Boppin’ the Burnie with Bob

Posted: February 23, 2015 in Latest News

Your favorite musical miscreants, the Jazz Perpetrators, are celebrating a special event with a special gig this Friday, February 27, at one of their old stomping grounds, the Thai Café in Glen Burnie.

Original Perp founder Bob “Superbad” Cuellar, all-around hip guy and purveyor of Hammond organ funkitude, is getting ready to leave cloudy/rainy/snowy Maryland behind and permanently relocate to year-‘round-sunny Florida. Although he won’t be departing until June, he’s got plenty to keep him busy between now and then in order to get ready for the move, so his fellow Perps have decided to get ahead of the curve and throw him a party/open jam while he’s still got some time on his calendar.

Because the Thai Café is the birthplace of the band, this will be a special night, so come on out and get down with Mister Superbad and his fellow Perps. All of our musician friends are welcome to come and sit in with us as the music kicks off around 7:30-8pm, depending on how much Thai beer is consumed before then.

The award-winning Thai Café is located at 7477 Baltimore Annapolis Blvd. in downtown Glen Burnie. For directions and menu, check out their web site at:

See you there, weather permitting (which is the main reason Bob’s heading south in his bad-ass Mustang convertible).
