About the event

Newport, Oregon: Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA) is pleased to present a live, double concert event – Beachin’ Jazz: A Sizzling Summer Serenade – Saturday, June 10th at 7pm and Sunday, June 11th at 2pm at the Newport Performing Arts Center.

The concerts are presented as a fundraiser for the upcoming annual Oregon Coast Jazz Party, of which Ken Peplowski is the musical director. Peplowski has performed with artists such as Benny Goodman, Mel Torme, Rosemary Clooney, and even Madonna, and has headlined at venues across the country, including the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, the Blue Note, and Dizzy’s Club. For Beachin’ Jazz, he’s gathered together powerhouse jazz performers, including Dave Captein (Bass), Todd Strait (Drums), Mike Horsfall (Vibraphone, Piano), and Dan Balmer (Guitar). Both sessions will feature Peplowski, Captein, and Strait. Saturday’s session will also feature Horsfall, and Balmer will perform in Sunday’s session.

“I can’t think of a better way to kick off the summer than with our good friend Ken Peplowski,” said Jason Holland, Executive Director of OCCA. “He always gathers incredible musicians, adds his wit and humor, and mixes it all together to create a party every time!”

Tickets are $40 per session when purchased in person at the Newport Performing Arts Center box office (777 W Olive Street) or by phone (541-265-2787). The box office is open Tuesday-Friday from 10am-5pm. Online ticketing is also available (additional fee applies).
