Some of Knoxville’s greatest jazz will swing into Oak Ridge at the Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church (ORUUC) on Saturday, November 14 at 7 p.m.  Everyone is invited to attend “An evening of jazz with Frog & Toad’s Dixie Quartet.” ORUUC is located at 809 Oak Ridge Turnpike in Oak Ridge. There is no cost to attend but donations will be gratefully accepted for ORUUC racial justice efforts.

The five member quartet, (strange isn’t it?)  includes  Jason Day on piano,  Nolan Nevels on drums,  percussionist David Knight,  Chad "Toad" Volkers on guitar, and  Jason "Frog" Thompson-bass, baritone and soprano saxophones.  Known for their very distinct overall sound quality as well as seemingly endless flexibility in dynamics and style, Frog & Toad’s perform from a broad range of musical influences as well as original pieces.
