Music from Cool Jazz by Jade will be featured at a pre-Father's Day event at Congregation Adath Israel in Newtown on Saturday, June 16.
Organizer Rita Frost, of Newtown, said she is excited to bring Jade to town.
Asked about the band's name, Skinger said, "Jade is a precious stone and that is what I think of my musicians. To have this much talent in one ensemble is quite rare and precious."
