Nearly 100 residents of Seashore Gardens Living Center and their guests enjoyed Jazz in the Garden, a free concert, on Sept. 6. The concert is part of the Schultz-Hill Foundation’s collaborative arts outreach program: The Music and Memories Series.

Due to extremely high temperatures, Jazz in the Garden was moved from an outdoor venue to SGLC’s indoor Boardwalk area. The concert featured music by the Teddy Royal Trio with Madame Pat Tandy as featured vocalist. Teddy Royal had been the lead guitarist for the Fats Domino band for 30 years, and Ms. Tandy has been singing professionally since 1970.

The one-hour set featured music ranging from the big band era to the 1970s, including an original composition by Royal and several entertaining audience participation numbers sung by Ms. Tandy.

The concert is the third of the Schultz-Hill Foundation’s 2018 Music & Memories Series, which is designed to bring the arts to seniors in the community. Sponsors of the concert include OceanFirst, The Hordes Family, The Forza Insurance Group and The Kligerman Foundation.
