Each year, Penny Pink, owner of the Portneuf Valley Brewery, donates $1,000 to the Bob Pink Jazz Scholarship fund, which allows the ISU jazz program to attract and retain gifted musicians from Idaho and beyond.
This February, the ISU Jazz Fest will present “Howard Wiley & Extra Nappy,” a high-energy Oakland-based funk band. This provides a special and unique opportunity to have a super-powered funk group of musicians come to Pocatello. This concert will take place on Feb. 9 from 9:30 to 11:30 p.m. at the Portneuf Valley Brewery. There is a $10 charge.
