Aardvark Jazztet to Play for Kip Tiernan Memorial Statue Unveiling
(Published: September 11, 2018)

The Aardvark Jazztet, a small ensemble drawn from The Aardvark Jazz Orchestra, will perform for the dedication of a memorial sculpture, honoring Kip Tiernan, a lifelong crusader for social justice, founder of Rosie's Place, and co-founder of the Poor Peoples United Fund. The dedication ceremonoy is Saturday, October 6, 2018 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at Dartmouth Street Boston, between Boylston and Newbury Streets. Kip was a fan and close friend of Mark Harvey and the entire Aardvark Jazz Orchestra for many decades. The band played several benefit concerts for Rosie's Place and PPUF. The October 6 dedication program will include music director Mark Harvey's portrait of Kip Tiernan, called The Prophet, a piece first performed for Aardvark's Silver Anniversary in 1997.

Members of the group are Arni Cheatham and Phil Scarff, saxophones; John Funkhouser, piano; Jesse Williams, string bass; Harry Wellott, drums; Mark Harvey, trumpet and music director. Veteran Jazztet member Peter H. Bloom will not be on the October 6 date, due to an out-of-town tour, but he'll return to the bandstand for future shows.
