ABOUT

UPDATE!!!

Looking for Keys to Join a Jazz Standards Band.

We are four guys (in our 60’s) who have been getting together weekly for a few months to play jazz standards. While we share a love of jazz and have been avid listeners for decades, this is the first opportunity we’ve taken to play it regularly. We’re reasonably staffed right now with drums, bass, guitar, and trumpet, but would like to add a fifth – on keys – to round out our sound.

We plan to start performing as soon as we get our mojo working, but none of us is looking to start a second career here.

If you are similarly-minded and can make weekly practices in Wallingford, please reach out! We’d love to talk.

Profile:
I am a "comeback" trumpet player (I majored in music many years ago, but never pursued it as a career, laid off the horn for several decades, then took it back up a few years ago.) Currently playing in the Southern Connecticut State Univ Concert Band, The Guilford Town Band, and a couple times a year with my old HS/College band (jazz-rock: BS&T, Chicago, Dreams, EW&F, etc).
