Jim Makarounis was the owner and namesake of the legendary Portland jazz club Jimmy Mak's. He died earlier this year at 53, after a battle with larynx cancer.

The tribute concert is part of the 2017 Soul’d Out Festival and will feature performances by iconic Portland jazz drummer Mel Brown’s hard-bop septet and his award-winning Hammond B-3 organ quintet, which will back well-known guest artists including Bobby Torres, Dan Balmer, LaRhonda Steele and Andy Stokes.

A third set backed by The Yachtsmen will feature Jarrod Lawson, Paul Creighton and Moose E. Lee, and the Soul Vaccination Horns.

An after-party featuring the Chris Brown Quartet will take place in the Roseland’s ground-floor club, Peter’s Room, following the concert.

Proceeds from “Musical Inspiration: Honoring Jimmy Mak” will be used to establish a music scholarship at PSU in Jimmy Makarounis’ name.
