Westmoreland Jazz Society

Westmorland Jazz Society In January 1997, the Westmoreland Museum of American Art established the Westmoreland Jazz Society to provide a venue for America's classical music art form -- jazz. Since the Museum's collection is comprised of American art, the connection has made a great combo!

Today, the WJS membership organization has over 200 members and is a vital organization run by volunteers. The Society's mission is to reach out to regional artists by providing a venue for performing.

The WJS meets at the Museum on the third Thursday of the month from September through June for a jazz performance. During its season, the WJS presents many of the finest and most respected jazz musicians of the region.

To keep the music playing, we need your support -- consider taking a membership or join us on the third Thursday of the month.

RML Jazz Throughout the expansion & renovation of the Museum, all performances will take place at the Seton Hill University Performing Arts Center at 100 Harrison Avenue in Greensburg.

RML Jazz specializes in smooth jazz combined with modern and traditional jazz, be-bop, updated standards, and even Dixieland when the mood or occasion arises. They feature trumpet and sax soloists backed by a solid rhythm section of guitar, keyboard, bass, and drums. RML Jazz performs as a trio up to a 6-piece group, and plays many popular venues around the Pittsburgh and surrounding areas. The band consists of Tammi Dahl (vocals), Glenn Utsch (keyboards), Jeff Leonhardt (guitar) and Gene Laus (trumpet, flugelhorn).

Tammi Dahl, from Franklin, PA, is the newest addition to RML Jazz and has been performing in the Pittsburgh area for over 20 years. Named by Whirl Magazine as one of the "Top Five Entertainers in Pittsburgh", Dahl has performed with celebrities such as Harry Connick, Jr and Lionel Ritchie, and founded "Side By Side," a mentoring program for high school musicians and vocalists to work with seasoned professionals. She also leads her own band, Dreamscape, which performs at private events and weddings. Dahl's exceptional vocal talents add an exciting dimension to RML Jazz.

Glenn Utsch, Ph.D., is a professor of Music at Slippery Rock University and performs a wide variety of musical styles from Bach to Rock. He has performed at Lincoln Center for Former First Lady Nancy Reagan as well as in London, England. Locally, he has performed with Groove Merchant, Bob Riddle's Kings of Swing, Bombay Blue Sapphire Band, and Orchestra Tropical. Dr. Utsch can be heard on RML Jazz albums "RML Jazz", and "RML Jazz Smooth and Hot".

Jeff Leonhardt performs with Groove Merchant, and has performed with other local jazz, Latin, and swing groups, including the Bombay Blue Sapphire Band, the Kings of Swing, and Algo Latino. He has also performed with the Bach Choir of Pittsburgh, Stage 62 Productions, Gene Kelly Awards, and has been guest soloist with the Pittsburgh Civic Orchestra. Leonhardt is a graduate of Duquesne University, has been a music educator in the Upper St. Clair School District since 1987 and maintains a private guitar instruction practice. He has recorded with Anne Feeney and rock icon Commander Cody, and is on RML Jazz albums "Family and Friends," "RML Jazz" and "RML Jazz Smooth and Hot".

Gene Laus is by far one of Pittsburgh's finest musicians. He was a member of the Balcony Big Band, and has also played with Roger Humphries Big Band as well as many area groups, including Matt Ferrante and Modern Times, Algo Latino, and Orchestra Tropical. Laus has also played for national acts such as Smokey Robinson and The Temptations, as well as frequent oldies shows. He previously was leader of the group, Hit and Run, which toured the East Coast for many years. Laus has recorded with RML Jazz on "Family and Friends," "RML Jazz," and "RML Jazz Smooth and Hot," and wrote the RML Jazz original, "Kevin's Heaven."
