The Jost Project band featuring legendary vibraphonist Tony Miceli, will visit Penn State Brandywine to perform for students, faculty, staff and community members on Tuesday, Nov. 4 at 4 p.m. in the Main Building Auditorium, room 101.
The Jost Project is a band devoted to jazz with the goal of reaching a new and different generation of fans. The band members define themselves as "baby boomers" and play the rock and roll they grew up listening to with a rare jazz-infused twist. Songs like "Walk this Way" by Aerosmith, "Come Together" by The Beatles and "Kashmir" by Led Zeppelin are just some of the songs included in The Jost Project's repertoire.
The three-man show consists of vibraphonist Tony Miceli, Paul Jost on vocals and harmonica and Kevin MacConnell on double bass. The band was initially formed by Miceli and MacConnell in 2005. But when Miceli heard Jost perform, described as a "rare talent" who is a skilled vocalist, drummer, composer and arranger, he invited him to be a part of the group. Miceli and MacConnell were convinced the band deserved to have Jost's name, and the The Jost Project was created.
This event is free and open to the public. All presentations are held on the Penn State Brandywine campus, 25 Yearsley Mill Road in Media.
