“The Jazz Babies will celebrate their 40th anniversary with a benefit concert for Lincoln Academy at the Lincoln Theater in Damariscotta on Thursday, Aug. 18.
Fans of the long-standing Twin Villages jazz ensemble can expect a classic performance.
“We’ve been doing some rehearsing. We’ve been learning some new tunes,” said drummer Dave Page. “We have our core of standards that we’ve always played, so they can certainly expect to hear some of the old favorites.”
The original members were brothers and Newcastle natives Bob and Dave Page on piano and drums, respectively; Billy Sherman on bass; T.J. Wheeler on guitar; Barney Balch on trombone; and Dick Cash on flugelhorn. Lefty McCauslin, on saxophone, joined in the early 1980s.“
