[April 05, 2012]  Lincoln College will host the St. Louis Rivermen for a jazz concert on May 9 at 7 p.m. in the Johnston Center for Performing Arts on the Lincoln campus.

Combining some of the top traditional musicians in the United States, the St. Louis Rivermen perform jazz in the purest sense, and they play everything from ballads to blues to barnburners. World-renowned sousaphonist David "Red" Lehr's team of virtuosos includes Noel Kaletsky on reeds, Bobby Grimm on banjo, Jim Maihack on trombone, Pat Joyce on piano, Don Schroeder on drums and Steve Lilley on cornet.

Playing tunes from the sensitive to the sensational, this band wows the crowds. Their motto could be "Nobody comes to a concert to watch the musicians rest."

The St. Louis Rivermen concert is open to the public. Tickets, at $20 each, can be purchased through the president's office at Lincoln College.

The band is sponsored by the college board of trustees, and all proceeds will benefit the fine arts department at the college.
