Summertime Jazz Band at the Shirley Meeting House

The Shirley Meeting House, 41 Brown Road, Shirley MA 01464

Bringing together elements from vocalist giants of the 30s and 40s, classic jazz, and reconstructed popular songs, the Summertime Jazz Band does it all. Vocalist and composer Emilie Faucher offers polished lyrical stylings that pay homage to Judy Garland, Keely Smith, and Amy Winehouse. Rob Compagna, guitar teacher and owner of two Massachusetts-area guitar schools brings the heat of rock straight into to the Summertime world of jazz guitar. Joe Compagna, composer and music teacher plays the 6 string bass; and Peter Elwyn, composer and drummer extraordinaire provides the back-beat that pins it all down. Suggested Donation: $15.00

The Summertime Jazz Band is proud to support the First Parish Meeting House Preservation Society of Shirley. They are an all-volunteer, private, non-profit charitable organization founded in 1946 and formally incorporated in 1995. Its mission is to preserve the historic character and fabric of the Shirley Meeting House and encourage its continued use for cultural, social, and civic activities.

As a 501c3 charitable organization, the society relies solely upon grants and private donations to accomplish its goals: preservation, restoration, and maintenance of the building, as well as its promotion as a venue for the community’s enjoyment and use.
