Beer Parlor Ramblers back in the Boro for Averitt Concert Series
Placeholder Image

The first Averitt Center Summer Concert Series brings back the Beer Parlor Ramblers of the historic Crystal Beer Parlor in Savannah.

After a sell-out crowd in 2008 the Dixieland jazz group is back with their old-fashioned New-Orleans flair that made them a tremendous hit during their last venture to Statesboro. The show is brought to you by Georgia Power and will take place, une 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Emma Kelly Theater. Tickets for the show are $15 per person.

The Beer Parlor Ramblers first performed at the local pub in December 2003. Featuring William J. “Buddy” Kosic on drums, Christian Flores on the tuba, Willie Hammet blowing down the trumpet, Jon Miller on trombone, Sandra Embly tickling the piano ivories, and Royce Johnson wailing on the clarinet, flute, saxophone and plucking away on the banjo, this house band is known for their unique style of Dixieland music blended with a touch of humor.

The Ramblers have entertained thousands of locals and visitors alike at the famed restaurant. The Beer Parlor Ramblers have been featured in concert at Savannah’s Coastal Jazz Society, The Savannah Jazz Festival, and they recently entertained throngs of St. Patrick’s Day enthusiasts aboard the Savannah Music Festival float.

Bring your entire family to experience a little bit of history and a whole lot of fun at the Emma Kelly Theater for “the best toe-tappin’ Dixieland jazz in the South!”
