Jazz Show & Jam - Host: Ted Knowlton, piano w/ Ken Steiner, bass Michelle Tannen, drums

"Our group starts with bass, drums, and piano. Ken & I (Ted) have been around longer than the other Jazz Jam musicians. We are probably not as "out of the box" (that's Michael's favorite term) as some of the younger musicians hosting the Jam, but we bring a wealth of jazz experience to the party." And, we love "out of the box" folks to jam with. Give us your freedom of expression; we give you a solid base of jazz experience. You draw us out; we draw you out! Our bassist, Ken Steiner, has extraordinary pizzicato technique.

The Worcester area is known for its great food at reasonable prices. And guess what? The price just got better: $23.12 per meal from March 19th to 31st. It’s the semi-annual Worcester Restaurant Week, a time when people can sample the food of some of our best restaurants without breaking the bank.

In an all-new episode, Steve D'Agostino interviews three of the participants in the latest Worcester Restaurant Week:

Molasses Creek, Acoustic folk & Marc Pinansky, country/folk/pop

Phenomenal songwriters and interpreters of song, Molasses Creek's concerts run the gamut of traditional to contemporary acoustic, sweet ballads with ensnaring vocal harmonies, hot instrumentals, quirky vaudevillian pieces, and captivating stage banter stitching it all together. From Okracoke Island, North Carolina. Expect the unexpected . . . unexpect the expected!
