Imagine entering a funky restaurant or club. You find a table and settle down with a hearty meal and libation in hand.

14-year-old Tap phenom, Justin Ballasy commands admiration when he takes to the stage.

Hoofers, vocalists and jazz enthusiasts alike flocked to Skippers in droves this past Thursday for the Tap Jam extravaganza. After an unbearably long three-month hiatus, the night’s event more than met our need for rhythm and soul that’s been missing all this time.

As soon as you entered the popular pub, you could feel the electricity in the air. While the band set up, performers and their supporters bustled about in great anticipation for the exciting evening ahead. Serenading the crowd were music masterminds Radam Schwartz on the piano, bassist Michael Logan and Gregory Bufford playing drums. The lively set also included feel-good, rousing performances from jazz vocalists Frank Noviello and Joy Foster, getting hearts pumping for what was to follow.

Something magical happened at The Crossroads this past Tuesday night. It follows a familiar pattern this time of year:

As the students who have been away at college for several months come home for the holidays, they bless us with the musical gifts they have been honing in the halls of academia. The energy is high as some friendly back-and-forth takes place between the musicians as they vie for their place on the proverbial totem pole. (more…)
