TONIGHT! I Movember LIVE: Movember is the annual, world-wide charity movement dedicated to changing the face of men’s health – all through the power of the moustache. Come watch the show as all of The PIT Movember Team defeat Cancer live on stage. Movember’s primary campaign objective is to raise awareness around men’s health issues, specifically cancers affecting men. We want everyone to know that most cancers are highly curable if caught in the early stages- including prostate and testicular cancer. Movember aims to increase early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment, as this will ultimately reduce the number of deaths from cancer.

Venues where he performs become destination spots for other musicians. O’Neal’s swinging and highly melodic style reflects the influences of idols Oscar Peterson and Art Tatum. Jeremy Pelt joins the Johnny O’Neal Trio in this engagement; the first of two O’Neal Trio engagements this season that will feature a special guest. Voted Rising Star on the trumpet for many years, Jeremy Pelt’s two recent CD releases – “Men of Honor” and “The Talented Mr. Pelt” – proclaim his arrival; critics from around the world consistently affirm this fact with rave reviews of his live and recorded performances.
