JP Big Band  November 11, 2024

The fundraiser at Wellington’s was a huge success- smashing their goal with $1300 earned for homeless vets in SE MN.  Next up is a concert January 20, 2024 along with the Mayo High School Jazz Band directed by Aaron Cole at Mayo High in Rochester, MN.  Dr. Paulson graduated from Mayo and like the concert at Wellington’s, the band will be performing selections from their recently released third CD- “The Refuge Project.” The recording features the amazing new trumpet player Adam Meckler along with the stellar contributions of jazz singer Janette Hanson who will join the band for the concert at Mayo. 


John C. Paulson is a fiscal year 2023 recipient of a Creative Support for Individuals grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. The Mayo High concert and CD recording are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural

heritage fund.
