Quick update on projects, jams, and concerts
April 27, 2017
Friends, I just wanted to put something new up here. I’ve been plugging away at learning all sorts of new things, including a bunch of drum programming that I’m just having a blast doing. This song I posted was a lot of fun exploring a brand new area of jazz that I hope to do more of soon.
For those of you who are not in the know, the Emerald of Siam hosts a great jazz jam in Kennewick every Wednesday. I will be hosting said jam on the 1st Wednesday of each month, and I’d love to see any of you players or fans alike there.
Second, we’re about to kick off the Summer Jazz Series that I host at J Bell Cellars. It runs the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month, from May to September. The lineup this year is incredible. As we keep bringing in more people, we keep raising the bar on the quality of musicians that want to come visit. I can’t recommend enough that you come out a few times and enjoy one of the best courtyards and some of the highest quality of music you’ll hear in the valley.
Lastly, I’m still working on the house concert series that I’ve been doing, and I hope to have more announcements about that, as well as an easier way to stay connected with jazz here in the Lower Valley. Look back here soon!
