We're gearing up to return The Lilypad in Cambridge MA on Saturday March 25th. It’s the first in a series of performances planned at the Lilypad in 2023.
Showtime is 4:30PM. Tickets will be available online at www.joanwatsonjones.com/lilypad-tickets. It would be of great help that you purchase tickets online as we may not have anyone at the door to sell tickets.
We'll be sending out your invitation to the show in a couple of weeks!
We’re very much looking forward to having saxophonist, Bobby Tynes join us on this show. Here’s a link to a video featuring Bobby when he played with us this past summer.
Yes, the band is Frank Wilkins-piano, Dave Zox-Bass and Alvin Terry-drums.

We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!!
March in "The Jazz Room"
We start the month with an interview with pianist, Frank Wilkins. I call this show "In the Beginning" because it was one of the first shows we recorded back in 2006. Learn about some of the up and coming artists of that time in this show.
Then meet saxophonist Stan Chovnick and pianist, Linda Presgrave.
The second half of the month we take you behind the scenes in the music business. Meet Jon Catherwood-Ginn
the program director for the Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech. Then meet artist manager Judith Humenick. We met at the Newport Jazz Festival with the artists she managed "The Royal Bopsters".
You may listen on The Jazz Room page of my website and “Are We Here Yet Podcast” for archived shows.
That’s it for now. Hope to see at The Lilypad on March 25th!!
All the Best to You,
