Bil and Jay Leonhart

Although Bil and Jay Leonhart pursue their individual musical aspirations on opposite sides of the country, the brothers meet once a year "to concertize" for old times' sake.

Their annual reunion show originally was scheduled for August but had to be canceled as Jay Leonhart, a New York resident, was unable to travel west when Hurricane Irene canceled flights. The concert was rescheduled for 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, at Avalon Bar & Grill, 105 W. Valley View Road, Talent.

As children, Jay and Bil Leonhart were proficient on several instruments, but over time, Bil became fixed on guitar, and Jay concentrated on bass.

While both brothers, now in their 70s, were rooted in the jazz tradition, Bil became more of a solo artist and Jay an accompanying bassist.

Cover to the show is $10. Call 541-512-8864.
