The First Congregational Church of Meriden is excited to present

Lunch 'ní Concert

a jazz performance with a new twist on Sunday, May 31. Ticket holders will first enjoy a buffet luncheon at 12:30 p.m. followed by an electrifying concert featuring the Hot Cat Jazz Band at 1:30 p.m.  

Since 1990, the Hot Cat Jazz Band has been one of the hottest Dixieland and Swing jazz bands in Connecticut. The Hot Cats are increasingly popular for their exciting and entertaining performances, coupled with hard blowing and original arrangements of traditional jazz standards. Their prime influences include the likes of Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Fats Waller, Jellyroll Morton, Nat King Cole, Louis Jordan and Duke Ellington. Check them out at www.hotcatjazz.com or listen to them here

Folks who just canít get enough jazz are also invited to attend the 10:00 a.m. worship service that day in the First Church Sanctuary, with the Hot Cat Jazz Band providing the music during the service. Tickets for the luncheon and concert ($20 adult, $10 child under 16) are available either at the church office, at Prentis Printing Solutions at 35 Pratt St., or by phone at 203-631-8423.
