Aimsel Ponti of the Portland Press Herald described Novel Jazz, “These are all seasoned jazz guys, and the result is a sound that made me sway, smile, groove, slow-dance with myself around the living room and play the air snare drums!” The Saco River Theatre is a performing arts center and community hub dedicated to providing accessible, diversified cultural and educational programs to the general public by acting as a professional Equity theater, music venue, cross-disciplinary arts lab, and exhibition space.
