Jazz Serices to Benefit FPMC - Family Promise of Monmouth County

Jazz Vespers Service
Verses, Vibes and Vittles to Benefit Family Promise of Monmouth County
Lincroft, NJ – Due to popular demand, Lincroft Presbyterian Church will host its’
Second Annual Jazz Vespers, a service with Verses, Vibes and Vittles on February
19, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. A free-will offering will be taken to support Family Promise of
Monmouth County, which assists homeless families in Monmouth County. Light
refreshments and nursery care will be provided.
Musicians slated to accompany Lincroft Presbyterian Church Music Director and
professional trumpeter John Morrison include:
 Pianist Timothy Broege, a nationally renowned composer and music director at
Belmar Presbyterian Church;
 Guitarist Doug Clarke, an in-demand jazz sideman, and a prodigy of Tal Farlow;
 Drummer John Gronert who has performed with The Drifters and Darius
Brubeck, and was a student of Joe Morello and Sonny Igoe;
 String Bass and Guitarist Robert Marriner who has played with the Platters, Little
Anthony, the Duprees and the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra.
The church is thrilled to have their musical director John Morrison and renowned
jazz musicians share their music. Although the church community already supports
Family Promise by hosting families and by volunteering, they wanted to do even
more. Proceeds from the evening’s free will offering will be donated to Family
Promise, and bring a message of hope to the community.
