Outpost welcomes The Clayton Brothers to The Outpost for the first time for two nights! Thursday, Oct 17 will be a concert like others at The Space, while Friday will be an Outpost Benefit featuring a small table jazz club setting and pre-concert reception with tacos, desserts & more. This special event is also the renaming and dedication of the Outpost's performance area as "The Weil Hall" in recognition and appreciation of the generous donations made by Bumble Bee Bob Weill and his family to Outpost which made possible the purchase of the building by Outpost Productions in Fall 2011.
Founded in 1977 by brothers John & Jeff Clayton, The Clayton Brothers, were recently described by Jazz Times Magazine as “snazzy stewards of a timeless brand of funky hard bop that won’t go out of style so long as any of us have a hedonistic bone in our bodies.” While the brothers’ musical paths diverged over the years, they continued to share a common musical vision that would draw them back together. Their recent releases, including their latest, The Gathering, showcase a rich musical stew of ballads, blues and funk-bop. The band features John Clayton, bass; Jeff Clayton, saxophone; John Clayton's son, Gerald Clayton on piano, Trumpeter, Terell Stafford, hailed as “one of the great players of our time” by piano legend McCoy Tyner; and Obed Calvaire,
