Brian Litz of the famous musical Litz family is an inspiring jazz guitar player. On the Fourth Thursday of every month he assembles passionate jazz performers from the area at Beans in the Belfry to live and breath light jazz for a couple of hours. You’ll often find Bruce Fransen on his sax, clarinet or flute and Mark Lysher plucking his upright bass. Enjoy a light meal while you enjoy the jazz tunes, a craft beer, bottle of wine or artisan vinted hard cider or flavored mead from the valley. There is no cover but the performers appreciate contributions to their tip jar.
Enjoy great jazz standards expertly performed by local talents. Son of the renowned guitar teacher Victor Litz, Brian has a love of classical guitar music and blossomed under his father’s guidance. He traveled the nation’s cities performing in famous clubs. Today, Brian is based in West Virginia and Germantown, Maryland and performs jazz guitar, along with John Leonard on upright bass, and Bruce Fransen on saxophone and flute.
