Playing trumpet with flugelhorn this Sunday September 16th at Riot Fest in Chicago.
In 2014 I had the pleasure of working as an arranger with JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound, The Million Dollar Quartet, The CCM Jazz Ensemble, The Al Sofia Orchestra and a long list of private clients needing wedding ceremony and event music. I’m looking forward to booking many new projects in the coming year!
I’ll be playing trumpet in the Walkmen horn section this evening. I hope they kill it like they did at pitchfork a few years ago. They even bring their very own piano with them everywhere they travel.
I don’t think anyone who checked out Zooey Deschanel’s band She and Him at Millennium Park in Chicago a few summers back would forget the killer girl band that opened up the show. I’ve been lucky to run into the members of Hollows a few more times since then both playing with JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound at the Metro and performing alongside Bassist and Flutist Emma Hospelhorn in the horn section for Stephen Paul Smoker. The first song to surface of their upcoming release is called “V is for Vulture” and it features myself and trombonist Andrew Zelm. To hear more about the release check out this interview in the Brooklyn Vegan.
