The band’s back together at the Beach Bar

For one night only, the boys'll be back at the Beach Bar at Wharfside.

Steve Simon and the Jazz islanders, an all-volunteer, all amateur bunch of talented locals, will be playing a "reunion concert" Sunday from 4 to 7:30 p.m.  

This is the group's first performance in about four years, since its founder, Steve Simon, moved off island. Since then, he's dedicated himself to promoting  all-star blues concerts to entertain and benefit  members of the U.S. military.  

Simon's put together shows both in the US and in the Middle East.  One show, called Bluzapalooza, is set for October in Bethesda, Md. at Walter Reed.

Simon told Lynda Lohr of the St. John Source he expects some former regulars to join him this weekend as well as folks who just drop in. "It's always been sort of a jam session," he said.
