Jazz LIVE features electric violin virtuoso Geoffrey Castle

Jazz LIVE at Marine View: Free all-ages jazz concert by electric six-string violinist Geoffrey Castle begins at 5 p.m. Feb. 10 at Marine View, 8469 Eastside Dr. NE, Tacoma. It's difficult to classify Castle's music; you'd have to include classical, Celtic, rock, pop, jazz, blues, R & B, funk and gospel when describing him. Appearing with him at Marine View are trusty sidemen Eric Robert on keyboards and Darin Watkins on drums.  As an added dimension, lighting effects expert Michael Duncan makes an appearance to illuminate the night. Info: or (253) 229-9206.
