- The late Ben Tucker
JUST a quick jaunt across the river and you’ll encounter an evening of dancing, dining, and drinks, all in loving memory of Savannah jazz bassist Ben Tucker.
With musical entertainment organized by the Coastal Jazz Association, guests can hit the floor to the sounds of vocalist Gina Rene, pianist Eric Jones, trombonist Teddy Adams, drummer Billy Hoffman, bassist Mark Peterson, guitarist Howard Paul, and saxophonist Jody Espina.
Guests can dine on small plates with a seafood theme—think shrimp, cheese, fruit, and charcuterie—which will be featured over the weekend at the Aquacurean Seafood & Spirits event. Those interested in imbibing can sample an array of fine rums, courtesy of Zacapa Rum.
The event acts as a fundraiser for The First Tee of Savannah, a youth organization dedicated to introducing the game of golf to kids from all walks of life.
It’s been two years since Tucker, an avid golfer, was tragically struck by a reckless driver on Hutchinson Island: let’s raise a glass and remember his luminous career and life. Thursday, August 27, 8 p.m., $75
