Fall Music Tour Still Going Strong
Oct. 25, 2003 — Senator Russell would like to remind the community that his Fall Jazz Music Tour is still going strong. The Senator is urging the public to come out and enjoy a night of music and support local businesses.
The tour, which began on August 29 at the Holger Danske Hotel, is designed to stimulate the economy of St. Croix by increasing evening business at restaurants and promoting local talent by featuring local artists and bands. The tour was organized in collaboration with the Frederiksted Economic Development Association and the Christiansted Restaurant and Retail Association. The associations chose the restaurants and Senator Russell, through a donation of 10 percent of his Senate salary, is paying the cost of the bands.
On Friday, October 24, the tour moves to Pleasant’s Restaurant in Kings Alley, Christiansted, where you will be entertained by the Rhythmix band led by bassist Mario Thomas. The remainder of the tour will feature the Marcus Rabb Quartet on Nov. 7 at the Beachside Café in Frederiksted, the V.I. Jazz Ensemble on Nov. 21 at the Fort Christian Brew Pub in Christiansted, Rhythmix on December 5 at Pier 69 in Frederiksted and finally Caribbean Jazz Quartet on December 19 at Tu/Tu Bene/Café Mistro in Christiansted.
Senator Russell urges the public to come out tonight and enjoy the Rhythmix band and the fine dining at Pleasant's restaurant and take advantage of the remaining tour dates by coming out and supporting local music and local businesses.
