Jazz Quartet Featuring Local Phenom Andrew Tinch Returns to The Place

A swinging jazz quartet featuring the work of a gifted young local musician, Andrew Tinch.

This will be a return appearance of the group that thrilled a full house at The Place last August. The group’s song list will include familiar jazz standards. The event is a part of a monthly jazz series produced by the Gulf Jazz Society.

Tinch, a senior at Mosely High School, has been the leader of a popular local youth jazz ensemble called Hornstew. The ensemble has appeared at many venues in Panama City including the Marina Civic Center’s Back Stage Pass and more recently the Lynn Haven Jazz Festival.

An exceptionally talented musician, Tinch’s main instruments are guitar and trumpet. But, he also plays the piano, organ, bass and accordion.

Tinch will be accompanied by Saxophonist Chris Rochester, faculty leader of the Gulf Coast State College Jazz Ensemble; Bassist Steve Gilmore, a three-time Grammy award winner: and Drummer Charles Pagano, foremost percussionist in the region.

“I want to get my generation into jazz,” said Tinch.” “And it’s great to see friends pick up albums from one of the greats — Wynton Marsalis and Miles Davis. I hope young people will develop a deeper appreciation of America’s art form––jazz. Hopefully, it will be a spark in the community.”

Though he was born in Birmingham, Andrew grew up in Panama City, where he has been immersed in the music scene. His father, Jeff Tinch, graduated from Florida State University with a degree in music education, passing his knowledge and his talent onto his son. The senior Tinch is music minister at the Rock of Panama City.

The Place restaurant offers a full bar and a menu that includes hamburgers, a variety of sandwiches, salads, seafood, prime rib and steaks.


Tickets are $10 for GJS members and $12 for others.
