Photos from "Peanuts" Whalum's
80th birthday party now online

Jay Brandt of Brandt's informs StLJN that photos and video from Hugh "Peanuts" Whalum's recent 80th birthday party are now available online. The much-loved singer, pianist and saxophonist celebrated his natal day at the club on Sunday, September 7 with a lively crowd that included many friends, fans and St. Louis musicians as well as his nephew, the well-known smooth jazz saxophonist Kirk Whalum, who's hosting the photos and video on his Web site here.

Brandt says the event also raised $2,000 for a music scholarship fund named after "Peanuts" Whalum, and notes that both Whalums will be among the performers on this fall's Smooth Jazz Cruise produced by St. Louis- based Jazz Cruises LLC.
