Berks Jazz Fest "25" Series: Greg Adams & East Bay Soul perform Saturday at B24 Livehttp://www.eastbaysoul.com/ebsband_new.jpg
    
The special Boscov’s Berks Jazz Fest "25" Concert Series continues this weekend at Building 24 Live in Reading.
     Building 24 Live and the Berks Arts Council are collaborating to present the
concert series that will be part of the year-long celebration leading up to the 25th anniversary festival set for April 10-19, 2015.
     Greg Adams & East Bay Soul will headline Saturday, June 14, 7:30 p.m.
     The mega funky East Bay Soul is the brainchild of trumpeter Greg Adams. This hugely talented lineup has its roots firmly grounded in the uniquely soul based genre of San Francisco's East Bay area and as a consequence delivers tight horn filled rhythms that are both entirely timeless and totally to die for.
     Adams is a founding member of Tower of Power and here, as East Bay Soul, he is joined by another ex-TOP stalwart trumpeter Lee Thornburg.
