I am Jerry Hooper, Principal of Jerry Hooper Music which operates the Liberty Jazz groups. The LJ groups appear around the greater KC area and perform jazz and background music. We offer several group configurations from duo to quintet, depending on your budget. We specialize in jazz standards, Latin favorites, and a wide variety of well-known songs. I play keyboards both in solo environments (restaurants, clubs, weddings, etc) and with groups such as Liberty Jazz. I studied both flute and piano through college and played piano in the well-known Raytown South Jazz Band under the direction of Dr. Carroll C. Lewis, I played piano in the Central Missouri State University Jazz Band under the direction of Mr Lee DeFelice. I have studied privately with John Elliott, Dr Bob Lawrence (Dallas School of Music), Rob Mullins (Los Angeles), Joe Cartwright (Kansas City) and James Dering (McKinney, TX). I quite recently retired from a four-decade banking career and am now living my dream of playing piano/keyboards with and for various venues.
