Weekly Music Series Debuts in Storrs Center

Local Musicians Play Every Saturday from 2-4 PM


November 16, 2012 – Live music has arrived in Storrs Center!  Every Saturday for the remainder of the year, local musicians will play at the new Storrs Center town center.  This Saturday, the Jan Jungden Trio ( is featured and will play from 2 to 4 p.m.  The event is free and the public is invited to make day of it and explore all of the new shops and restaurants now open at Storrs Center.

The Jan Jungden Trio infuses a carefully chosen jazz repertoire with a sound that is truly their own. Jan's keyboard versatility keeps things interesting whether she is swinging with the band or burning up a solo on piano or organ. She surprises her audience by switching to flute to break up the instrumentals or singing a standard a la Diana Krall or an original composition. Fred Fagan has ability to be comfortable whether walking through a jazz standard on upright bass, or snappin' and poppin' on electric bass, and Justin Blackburn keeps things moving with his traditional jazz drumming as well as his natural feel for Latin and funk rhythms.

The music series continues with the following line-up of musicians throughout the remainder of the year:

Saturday, Nov. 17 – Jan Jungden Trio

Saturday, Nov. 24 – The Recliners

Saturday, Dec. 1 – Curtis Brand
