On Sunday, August 15, 2021, starting at 6pm, the Beauregard-Keyes House will host a A Salute to Great New Orleans Clarinetists. The event will feature Clarinetist Tim Laughlin! Laughlin was born and raised in New Orleans. He began playing clarinet at age nine. Shortly after, discovered jazz on the radio, thus starting his early record collections. His influences are many: Irving Fazola, Benny Goodman, Pete Fountain, Kenny Davern, Bob Wilber, Connie Jones, Jack Maheu. Joining Tim are Nahum Zdybel and Taylor Kent. Nahum is a talented improvisor and composer based in New Orleans. He leads and tours with his own talented group and is a first- call guitarist on many jobs in New Orleans. Taylor is an established bass player with several bands and performs at times with the LPO.
Doors open at 6pm for the Salute to Great New Orleans Clarinetists, with the concert beginning at 6:30pm. Seating is open on a first come, first serve basis in the air conditioned Salle À Manger, or dining room, of the BK House. This is a Bring Your Own Beverage event!
