  • BGCMC Repertory Ensemble
  • Sean Thomas Double Trio featuring Johnathan Hurst-drums, Gary Christianson-bass, Tyler Khosey-Saxophone and Sean Thomas-drums & steel drums
  • CF Patriot Blues Jazz Combo led by Gregory Snider plus more

“International Jazz Day Ocala” is being hosted under the aegis of the Boys and Girls Club of Marion County and is produced by Sean Thomas, Cultural Arts Specialist for The Boys & Girls Clubs of Marion County.  Mr. Thomas brings his passion for music and culture from the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance, now known as the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz Performance.
