About the Band: A native of Toronto Canada, saxophonist and composer Pete Mills’ discography includes 4 solo titles, with his most recent, 2014’s Sweet Shadow. The CD released on Vancouver’s Cellar Live Records has garnered critical acclaim – “A stellar recording”-JazzTimes, “Man, what a gas!”-DownBeat and a 4 ½ star rating from Dan McClenaghen at Allaboutjazz.com. In Columbus Ohio he performs as a featured soloist with the Columbus Jazz Orchestra (Byron Stripling Musical Director).
Educated at the Eastman School of Music and the University of North Texas, Mills has received Grants from the Canada Council and was a recipient of the North Carolina Arts Council Jazz Composer’s Fellowship. In addition to his performing, Mills teaches saxophone, improvisation and directs the jazz ensemble at Denison University in Granville, Ohio.

Additional things to know: This performance is FREE! Seating is available on the grass in front of the gazebo so bring a blanket and an umbrella (there isn’t much shade in the park yet!). Zaki Grill will be serving their signature Mediterranean food, and J-Pops will be tempting us with their yummy artisan popsicles in a range of flavors! There is also a playground next to the gazebo for the kiddos. Harrison West Society will have chalk available for anyone who wants to get their art on while they enjoy the concert. And ** NEW THIS YEAR** Saucy Brew Works – Columbus will be hosting a special happy hour just for the Jazz Stage following the show!
There are no restroom facilities available at this park so make sure to accomodate for this before you head out. 🙂
Lastly, we would like to say a HUGE thank you to our sponsors, many of whom have been with us since the beginning! We love you guys! – Thrive, M/I Homes, Lacquer Gallery, Katalina’s Corner Cafe, neighborhood relator Ken Wightman, Harrison’s On Third, City of Columbus – Parks and Recreation, Saucy Brew Works, City Pets, and Integrated Building Systems.
