Bob Vaughn, who runs the Sangamon Auditorium at UIS, tells me that the upcoming performance by the San Francisco Jazz Collective will be dedicated to Springfield drum great Barrett Deems, whom I mentioned in my recent column about drummers. The date of the 7 p.m. performance, Sunday March 30, 2014, falls about a month after what would have been  Deems’ 100 birthday.

Vaughn adds, “Concert goers are invited to share a piece of his birthday cake in the Auditorium Lobby following the concert. Special guests will be present.”
