ALL-STAR LINEUP TO PERFORM TRIBUTE CONCERT AT THE ROSELAND THEATER ON APRIL 23 IN HONOR OF JAZZ CLUB JIMMY MAK’S FOUNDER

Proceeds from “Musical Inspiration: Honoring Jimmy Mak” to be Used to Establish Music Scholarship at PSU in Jimmy Makarounis’ Name

Jimmy Mak’s, Starlini Enterprises and the Soul’d Out Festival announced an all-star lineup of jazz, funk and soul artists will perform a special concert at the Roseland Theater on Sunday, April 23, to pay tribute to Jimmy Mak’s founder Jim Makarounis with a three-set program that will feature noted musicians who performed at Portland’s nationally known jazz club during its initial 20-year run, according to show producer Tony Starlight.

“Jimmy Makarounis created much more than a jazz club,” Starlight said. “Jimmy Mak’s was a cultural institution that put Portland on the map as a true music city.”
The April 23 event, which will be part of the 2017 Soul’d Out Festival, will feature one set each by iconic Portland jazz drummer Mel Brown’s hard-bop septet and his award-winning Hammond B-3 organ quintet, which will back well-known instrumentalists and vocalists who have played at the club over the past two decades, including Bobby Torres, Dan Balmer, LaRhonda Steele and Andy Stokes. A third set backed by The Yachtsmen will feature funk, R&B and rock performances by saxophonist Patrick Lamb, vocalists Jarrod Lawson, Paul Creighton and Moose E. Lee, and the Soul Vaccination Horns. Various jazz dignitaries will speak throughout the evening, and an after-party featuring the Chris Brown Quartet will take place in the Roseland’s ground-floor club, Peter’s Room, right after the concert concludes.

A percentage of the event’s proceeds will be used to fund a jazz scholarship at Portland State University in Makarounis’ name. “Jimmy Mak’s was one of the only clubs in Portland music history to open its doors to minors for early shows,” Starlight said. “This provided an opportunity for middle-school and high-school kids to be exposed to world-class players and educators like Mel Brown, Alan Jones, Dan Balmer and Gordon Lee, providing an educational experience like no school in town.”

Musical Inspiration: Honoring Jimmy Mak is sponsored by Young’s Market Company and others to be announced. For more information visit the Jimmy Mak’s Facebook page
