Chowder Challenge - Chowder & Jazz

Jazz Concert & Chowder tasting, featuring Barnebey's Hot Four

Saturday, April 29, 2017, 11:30 am  2:30 pm

Coleman Hall

$20 advance, $5 more day of (for 15 tasting tickets & commemorative glass). Free admission for music only.

In the tastiest event of the popular Whale & Jazz festival, local chefs & cooks vie for the title of Best Mendonoma Coast Chowder in the 14th Annual Chowder Challenge.

Do you have what it takes to beat last years winner, The Pier Chowder House and Tap Room, who are coming back to defend their title?  Or maybe you have Grandmas secret recipe that has the magic ingredient that will take home the gold!

Restaurants participating so far include Bird Cafe in Point Arena, Ocean Cove Lodge Bar & Grill in Ocean Cove, the Russian House in Jenner, Anchor Bay store in Anchor Bay, and the Arts Centers Tuesday Guys!

As usual, two categories will be judged, Traditional New England-style Clam Chowder and Open Class. Challenge attendees will vote for Peoples Choice and Most Tasted awards.

The Open Class includes but is not limited to Manhattan-style Clam, Crab, Shrimp, Scallop, Lobster, Abalone, Salmon, or any other seafood combination. Vegetarian Chowders such as corn or mushroom chowder are also eligible.

This family-friendly midday event will have a Mardi Gras theme with beads, masks and celebrations! So, wear your Fat Tuesday attire and be ready for anything!

A highlight each year is the concert of traditional New Orleans jazz, this year performed once again by the ever-popular Barnebeys Hot Four of Sonoma County, returning to the Gualala Arts Center for the tenth straight year. 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 musicians and listeners alike, all in the tradition of the Big Easy. Those wanting to work off their chowder tasting with dancing will find themselves toe-tapping and boot-stomping as the infectious beats of New Orleans pushes them towards the dance floor!

Barnebeys Hot Four

The Hot Four continue to be the band of choice at the Whale & Jazz Festivals Chowder & Jazz event, having returned every year since 2006. They had also appeared for many years in Gualala sponsored by Gualala Lions Club with Barnebeys former Jazz Salvation Co. band. Tom Barnebey has assembled a group of versatile jazz musicians well versed in a good time, swinging, improvisational style: Robert Young on reeds & cornet, Carl Lunsford on banjo & guitar and Marty Eggars on string bass.

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 JSCs 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.

Tickets are $20 in advance; $5 more day of the event and includes commemorative wine or beer glasses and 15 chowder-tasting tickets, complete with hot bread fresh out of the oven and beverages, including local fine wines and microbrews as well as soft beverages. Additional tasting tickets will be available onsite for $1 each. Free admission for music only.
