Epiphany Jam Session Memorial for Rodger Pegues
Let’s celebrate the life of jazz pianist Rodger Pegues with a community jam session led by Blumeadows and friends. Wear all black like Rodger loved to do and bring your instrument to jam, or just come and listen. Refreshments will be provided.
Rodger Pegues, a native of Seattle, Washington, started singing solos in church at the age of 9. Inspired by the gifted music minister of Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Phyllis Byrdwell, he began to study piano. In his teens he received both classical and jazz piano instruction at the Cornish School of Allied Arts. At Garfield High School, under the directorship of Clarence Acox he was awarded a superior performance award at the Reno International Jazz Festival.
