Hot and Cool with the Perps

Posted: August 3, 2016 in Uncategorized

Yeah, it’s been hot, hotter than cat on a hot tin roof. But when it comes to music, the hottest hot is the cool sound of the Jazz Perpetrators, the coolest cats on or off a roof. And to prove it, the Perps will be making their monthly appearance at the John Barry Restaurant and Pub in the O’Callaghan Hotel in Annapolis this Sunday, August 7, from 7 to 10 pm. The Perps, now featuring Mister Smooth himself, vocalist Sterling Dorn, will make with their “high spirits, low volume” thing while you sit back, relax, chat, sip a delightful beverage of your choice, have a bite to eat, and soak up those swinging sounds.

The hotel and pub are located at 174 West Street, just a few blocks west of Church Circle near downtown Annapolis. And forget about parking hassles, the restaurant offers free valet parking in the rear.

So put yourself in relax mode and come on down; we’ll see you on Sunday!

Nobody’s more patriotic than your musical buddies, the Jazz Perpetrators (that’s us), and we’re about to prove it by celebrating the Fourth of July on the Third of July ‘cause we just can’t wait to make a lot of noise and blow stuff up! Hey, just kidding!  🙂

Anyhoo, the Perps (that’s us) will be putting on our monthly swing-a-ding-ding at the John Barry Restaurant and Pub in the O’Callaghan Hotel in Annapolis this Sunday, July 3rd, from 7 to 10pm, at which time our parole officer is scheduled to pick us up to take us back to the Big House for social reintegration.

This is the perfect opportunity for you (that’s you) to make this a double-fun weekend by stopping by to relax and hear the Perps (that’s us) do their world-famous “high spirits, low volume” thing on Sunday and then have all day Monday the Fourth to blow stuff up, set the neighbor’s house on fire with errant Roman candles, and chow down on all those outdoor-grilled dogs and burgers with friends and family.

The hotel and its restaurant are located at 174 West Street, just a few blocks west of Church Circle near downtown Annapolis. And forget about parking hassles, the restaurant offers free valet parking in the rear.

See you on Sunday!

It’s official: the Jazz Perpetrators will be appearing at the John Barry Restaurant and Pub in the O’Callaghan Hotel in Annapolis on the first Sunday of every month for the rest of the year EXCEPT for this month, during which they will emit their dulcet tones on the second Sunday of the month, June 12. (Nobody’s talking, but rumor has it that this may have something to do with anticipated meteor showers, baby showers, cosmic planetary misalignment, pre-trial hearings, or just scheduling issues).

Whatever the reason, your musical buddies will deliver their patented “high spirits, low volume” tunes with the able assistance of debonair vocalist/man-about-town Mr. Sterling Dorn on June 12, from 7 to 10 pm. Mark your calendar (paper or electronic) and come on down and relax with a drink or a bite to eat while the Perps perk up the place.

The hotel and its restaurant are located at 174 West Street, just a few blocks west of Church Circle near downtown Annapolis. And forget about parking hassles, the restaurant offers free valet parking in the rear.

This month we’ll see you on the second Sunday!

Jazz Perps: Four for Now

Posted: March 29, 2016 in Uncategorized

Last month the Jazz Perpetrators said a musical farewell to the band’s founder and godfather, Bob Cuellar, Mister Superbad hisself, as he relocated to Florida and the warmer, sunnier side of things. From all accounts, he’s already started burning it up down there, so all you snow birds have been givBob croppeden fair warning – when you hear all that hip Hammond stuff being played poolside, you’ll know who it is.

Now a quartet, the Jazz Perpetrators will continue spreading their patented “high spirits, low volume” philosophy at the John Barry Restaurant and Bar in the O’Callaghan Hotel. As a result of their well-received debut there earlier this month, the Perps will be Perps at O'Callaghanplaying in the pub on the first Sundays of the month, which means this coming Sunday, April 3, is your next opportunity to relax with a drink or a bite to eat and enjoy the new Perps playing their new material as well as their traditional favorites.  Downbeat is at 7 pm with music through about 10 pm.  Look for dinner and drink specials while the music is playing, too.

The hotel and its restaurant are located at 174 West Street, just a few blocks west of Church Circle near downtown Annapolis. And forget about parking hassles, the restaurant offers free valet parking in the rear – easy peezy.

Boo to You Two

Halloween’s coming early this year for patrons of the Crush Kitchen and Wine House in Annapolis. Instead of swinging the night away on the third Thursday of the month, the Jazz Perpetrators will sneak in a week early with candy corn and honking horns on Thursday, October 9.

Although the date is different, gig time will be the same, with the ghostly groovers kicking off their “high spirits/low volume” approach at 8pm and ending at 11pm, which ought to give everyone enough time to get home before their cars turn into pumpkins at the witching hour.

Crush is located at 114 West Street in Annapolis, right next to the Loews Annapolis Hotel and just a few blocks from Church Circle. Dinner reservations can be made by phone (410-216-9444) or online: http://www.crushwinehouse.com.

Later in the month (Thursday, Oct 23 to be exact), the Perps will also provide the musical entertainment at the Entrepreneurs Exchange (EE) annual Signature Mixer. The event will be held at Homestead Gardens’ Severna Park location (522 Ritchie Highway) from 6pm until 8pm.

Although the event is sponsored by EE, the general public is also welcome to attend. The price of admission includes a selection of food and beverages from local restaurants, door prizes, and a 50/50 raffle. Attendees will also get the opportunity to network at sponsor tables to learn about what makes their businesses tick.  For more information and tickets, visit http://www.eebiz.org.

We hope to see you at one or both of these events!

We’re right in the middle of July, and around these parts that means heat, humidity, sweat and sizzle. Luckily for you, the perfect antidote is available in the coolness that is the swinging sounds of the Jazz Perpetrators.

You do enough sweating and fretting all day long at your job, sitting in traffic, cutting the grass, fixing stuff around the house, and keeping the kids amused and out of trouble. Time for a little “you time” and what better way to do that than by relaxing with a good meal and some fine wine while unwinding to the sounds of the Perps, the band that knows how it goes.

The Perps will bring their special musical combination of high spirits and low volume to the Crush Kitchen & Wine House this Thursday, July 17, beginning around 8pm. Crush is located at 114 West Street in Annapolis, right next to Loews Hotel and just a few blocks from Church Circle.

Some special guests may be sitting in, so come on out, check out the sounds, and have a drink, but don’t get too tipsy – you may have to pick them out of a lineup someday.

Dinner reservations can be made by phone (410-216-9444) or online: http://www.crushwinehouse.com.

June is busting out all over, as the song goes; and as the song goes, so goes that merry bunch of tunesmiths, the Jazz Perpetrators. The Perps (the combo that looks good in orange) will keep things cooking with their trademark high spirited/low volume musical high jinks this Thursday, June 19, at the Crush Kitchen & Wine House, located at 114 West Street in Annapolis, right next to Loews Hotel and just a few blocks from Church Circle.

Crazy as June bugs and ready to swing into the summer season, the Perps will perform as a quartet for your dining and dancing pleasure while founding Perp Bob “Sexual Healing” Cuellar checks out the pool at his new home in Florida. (Some guys have all the luck.) So come on out, have a drink and soak up the soothing sounds of a band that knows how to get your toes tapping without making your ears bleed.
