Jazz in the Attic
State College’s Monthly Night-Club Jazz Series
In The Attic At The State Theatre
Jazz in the Attic has been going strong since 2016 as a collaboration between Rick Hirsch and the State Theatre. Our cozy room is limited to about 60 guests, so order your tickets now. Step off of College Ave and into a real jazz nightclub with low lighting, cabaret-style seating, bar service, and great live jazz. Hear live musicians from across the jazz spectrum, with great performers of swing, bebop, Latin jazz, Blues, modern straight ahead, electric jazz, and intimate acoustic sets. “The diversity of music and high level of talent right here in PA is amazing. No matter the musical sub-genre, every act we present is engaging, artistic, and entertaining,” says series artistic director and State College jazz musician Rick Hirsch.

This modern jazz ensemble fuses classical harmonies with modern angularity and ferocious drumming. Odd and elusive meters abound. Complete versions of Known Garden, recorded in 2011, and Squashua, from 2001, are available on iTunes, Spotify, CDBaby, and beyond.

Molly Countermine has singing since the age of 2, and has been a staple in the State College music scene since moving here in 1998. She began singing with the Phyrst Phamly, a band her father formed in 1967 that played every Saturday night at the Phyrst, but quickly branched out with her sister, Kelly, to form an original band, Babblefish, in 1999. She joined forces with Ted McCloskey in 2000, was a founding member of Pure Cane Sugar in 2007, and continues to perform weekly with Ted, her husband Rene, and drummer Daryl Branford with Ted and the Hi-Fi’s.
