Ocean Sol Jazz

Sunday - July, 22 @ 6:00pm

Ocean Sol-(Sun in Spanish) Jazz; has been playing around the Greater Portland area since 2007. Originally they were The Incumbents, a parody band - material created, written and managed by Dan Bernard featuring; Jeff Smith Guitar / Jamie Lebish - Bass and Frank Sanfilippo on Drums
We started playing jazz together, and took on the wonderful; Damian Allen on Sax until he moved. Brian Plourde came highly recommended, he plays all saxophones and Flute, and has been with us ever since.
OSJ has grown over the years and we now are lucky to have Ken Fasulo on percussion and Shannon O'Connor-vocals.
As of August 5th, 2017 we have started playing a series of benefit concerts to draw awareness and funding as a goal for the insane opiate epidemic in Maine and the US. We have partnered up with the non-profit. Dignity for Opiate Users- as our benefactor. We are also raising awareness for opening a non-profit recovery ranch in Maine called El Rancho De La Vida. This is a personal project, close to becoming a reality.
We are really having fun and playing some great jazz.
