SounDoctrine caps monthly jazz series


Contemporary jazz-fusion band SounDoctrine will conclude the Second Sundays Jazz Series this weekend at the Tyler History Center, 325 W. Federal St., beginning at 5 p.m. this Sunday.

The band’s performance will include area musicians in an open jam format. Dinner will be prepared by Guy’s Catering. Tickets are available in advance at Joe Maxx Coffee, downtown; Goldie’s Flowers on Belmont Avenue; and Excalibur Barber Grooming Lounge in Southern Park Mall; and online at secondsundays.net. Admission is $25 (couples $45).

Youngstown-based SounDoctrine began its musical journey in 2002 with the release of its debut album, “Perseverance.” It opened for national acts Bobby ”Blue” Bland, Freddy Jackson, Atlantic Starr, Spyro Gyra, Pieces of a Dream and Kirk Whalum.

Subsequent albums “Endurance” and “Inspire” netted the group several awards, including Soul Patrol’s Best Jazz Album of the year. SounDoctrine’s music has been featured on the Weather Channel, and its hit single, “Chi Tea,” is the theme for 21 WFMJ-TV’s “Community Connection.”

The band is working on its next album, to be titled “Source.”
