David Banks's Weekly "Jazz-Up Weekend" E-mails

The David Banks Gospel Jazz Ensemble at The Loft in Columbus, Georgia.
Gospel-jazz pianist David Banks sends out a weekly Jazz-Up e-mail about jazz events in the extended area. Mostly Columbus, Auburn-Opelika, Tuskegee, Montgomery, and occasionally bigger events in Birmingham, Atlanta and beyond. He keeps a standing-event page current on his website at www.drdav.org/music.

I probably won't stay on top of it well enough to always post his e-mails here, but below is last week's minus what's already past. If you want to get on his list, e-mail him at dbanks8@gmail.com. David brought down the house last year about this time at A Little Lunch Music, and will be returning on February 20, 2014.
