  The first annual Averitt Center Summer Concert Series brings back the Beer Parlor Ramblers, of the historic Crystal Beer Parlor in Savannah.
    After a sell-out crowd in 2008 the Dixieland Jazz group is back with their old-fashioned New-Orleans flair that made them a tremendous hit during their last venture to Statesboro.
    The show is brought to you by Georgia Power and will take place, Friday at 7:30 p.m. in the Emma Kelly Theater. Tickets for the show are $15 per person.
    The 75-year-old restaurant, the second oldest in Savannah, first opened its doors in 1933. Today, the old-fashioned Crystal Beer Parlor continues as a wonderfully inviting, one-of-a-kind place where guests experience
    The Beer Parlor Ramblers first performed at the local pub in December 2003. Featuring William J. “Buddy” Kosic on drums, Christian Flores on the tuba, Willie Hammet blowing down the trumpet, Jon Miller on trombone, Sandra Embly tickling the piano ivories, and Royce Johnson wailing on the clarinet, flute, saxophone and plucking away on the banjo, this house band is known for their unique style of Dixieland music blended with a touch of humor.
    The Ramblers have entertained thousands of locals and visitors alike at the famed restaurant. Their weekly Friday performances have become a customer favorite.
    Aside from their weekly gig, the Beer Parlor Ramblers have been featured in concert at Savannah's Coastal Jazz Society, The Savannah Jazz Festival, and they recently entertained throngs of St. Patrick's Day enthusiasts aboard the Savannah Music Festival float.
