Chowder & Jazz - Ninth Annual Whale & Jazz Festival, Gualala Arts Center
This family-friendly midday event includes a jazz concert of traditional New Orleans jazz performed by Barnebey's Hot Four of Sonoma County free to the public accompanying the 9th annual Chowder Challenge tasting competition.

Local chefs, cooks and even amateur competitors vie for the title of "Best Mendonoma Coast Chowder." $20 includes Festival Logo wine or beer glass and 15 tickets for chowder tastings and beverages, including fine wines and microbrew as well as soft beverages. Hot bread fresh out of the oven is included in the tastings. Additional tickets are available for $1 each.

A panel of 'celebrity' judges will determine winners in both professional and amateur classes in the categories of Traditional (New England Style Clam Chowder) and an Open Class (for all manner of seafood and even vegetarian chowders). A "People's Choice" vote of the Chowder & Jazz patrons decides the most popular entry and there is even a cash award for the entrant with the 'most tasted' chowder!

This year the Chowder Challenge "People's Choice" and "Most Tasted" contests end promptly at 1:15 p.m. so the winners in all classes can be announced by 1:30 p.m., to give patrons a chance to sample the winner's chowders before they are all gone! Fred Adler from KTDE, 100.5 FM is music coordinator and emcee of the event.

Barnebey's Hot Four

The Hot Four continue to be the band of choice at the Whale & Jazz Festival's Chowder & Jazz event, having returned every year since 2006. They had also appeared for many years in Gualala sponsored by Gualala Lions Club with Barnebey's former Jazz Salvation Co. band. Barnebey has assembled a group of versatile jazz musicians well versed in a good time, swinging, improvisational style. The repertoire for the afternoon will include old favorites, the resurrection of some obscure musical gems from the golden age of jazz, and probably a few surprises for the musicians and listeners alike, all in the tradition of the free and easy music of the Big Easy and great for New Orleans traditional dancing!

Tom Barnebey, cornet & trombone

Tom has been in trad jazz since the 1960s, when he began playing banjo and piano in pizza parlors around the Los Angeles area, and cornet with the then newly formed Jelly Roll Jazz Band. After moving to Sonoma County, he led the well regarded Jazz Salvation Company for 20 years. A highlight on the JSC's schedule in last nine of those years was the annual Dixieland by the Sea concert in Gualala.

Tom is the currently the cornetist with the Zenith Jazz Band, leads a Roaring Twenties style quintet called "Beyond Salvation Jazz Band," and fills in on various instruments with other trad bands in the Bay Area.

Robert Young, reeds & cornet

Prior to his move to Northern California, Robert was bass saxophonist in the legendary Golden Eagle Jazz Band in and worked with various other jazz bands in Southern California.

Robert is a multi instrumentalist and a full time musician. His "day job" is piano accompanist for schools, choral groups and theatrical performances. He plays cornet and reeds with the Black Diamond Blue Five and his own group, the El Dorado Syncopators. In the recent past, he has worked with the Zenith Jazz Band, Fourth Street Five, and the San Francisco Starlight Orchestra.

Scott Anthony, banjo & guitar

Joining us for this year's Barnebey's Hot Four & More will be banjo and guitar player Scott Anthony.

Since 1984 Scott has led and had a wonderful time playing in the Golden Gate Rhythm Machine, as well as Bob Schulz's Frisco Jazz Band, and others. He now makes a living as a musician, a part-time computer programmer and consultant, and builds custom guitars. When there is free time he devotes it to his original avocation as an artist, painting watercolors and acrylics.
