The John Allmark Jazz Orchestra was formed in 1991 and is now in its 25th year. The band is comprised of the finest jazz musicians in New England and is known throughout the country as one of the very best ensembles of its type. Over the years the band has backed up artists such as Grover Washington, Jr., Al Jarreau, Randy Brecker, Jeffrey Osborne, Nick Brignola, Claudio Roditi, Bobby Shew, Richie Cole, Shawnn Monteiro and the late, great Clay Osborne who the band recorded a cd with for the Whaling City label.
The band played for the last 17 years at Bovi’s Tavern in East Providence, RI, continuing a tradition of Monday night jazz that lasted for almost 45 years. In 2016 the Orchestra begins a new chapter in its history when it takes up residence at THE MET in Pawtucket, RI EVERY MONDAY!
