The “Pleasure of Your Company” concert series welcomes back the Zzymzzy Quartet. This quartet is the ‘last word in Gypsy Swing’ and features Beston Barnett on guitar and vocals, Matt Gill on clarinet, Pete Miesner on guitar and vocals, and Paul Hormick on bass. The group performs swing era music and French gypsy jazz and is bound to have your fingers snapping and your toes tapping. Meet the musicians and mingle with fellow music lovers at a complimentary post-concert reception. There is no charge for the concert, which is sponsored by the Scripps Ranch Friends of the Library, although donations are appreciated.
