4/5/11 Cid promo for 4/7 at Batesville store
Thursday, April 7, 6:30 - 9:00 p.m. - The Jim Wray Trio Plays Classic Swinging Jazz
Dear Batesville Store Weeknight Fun Seekers,
You've loved him with Hod O'Brien. You've dug him with his jazz fusion group, F.U.S.E. You've
been blown away by his keyboard work when he's played solo jazz at the store.
He's Jim Wray, one of the region's true music impresarios, a master of the keys, a good neighbor
who lives in the western 'burbs of Batesville--and one of the store's all-time favorite musical artists.
You'll be sure to groove on him again in a very large way when he returns to the Wine Cellar with
a new group, the aptly named Jim Wray Trio, this Thursday evening, April 7, from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.

"Jim is one of the best. High level of professionalism. You get a sense he loves what he does and
its not all about money with him. He took the time to rehearse with our daughter who sang at our

Jim is fantastic! We use him for almost all of our club events and recommend him to our members
for their private events with total confidence. A dream to work with, extremely reliable and an
amazing musician. We would highly recommend him to anyone that asks!
