On Wednesday, February 2, 2011 at 7pm the in demand concert sounds of The Bill Noren Group comes to this wonderfully intimate venue. This music quartet has been on the jazz scene in the New Jersey area for several years and individual members have been on the NJ music scene for much longer.

Strong musical style influences from artists such as: John Coltrane, Count Basie, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Ray Barretto, Herb Ellis, Tito Puente, Lester Young, Ron Carter and others have led the group down a path of creative musical discovery.
The group was founded and is led by drummer Bill Noren and includes Tom Rosenthal on saxophone, Bob Funesti on bass and Alex Bryant on guitar. They perform regularly at The Stonehouse in Warren, NJ, The Liberty House in Jersey City, NJ, The Old Riverhouse in Clinton, NJ, the Jazz in The Square series in Easton, PA and the Reading Terminal in Philadelphia, PA, among other venues. They have also been invited to perform for The Seton Hall Law School, The Chubb Corporation and The Hunterdon Medical Center. Their past performances have been noted by the Newark Star Ledger and NJ's premier jazz station WBGO, 88.3 FM. This is their encore appearance at an intimate Jazz It Up Music Series event and they are looking forward to making it a regular stop.
