Ray is the originator, and chief perpetrator of “Gonzo Piano”, defined as idiosyncratically subjective, but engaging. This creative approach to Jazz has earned Ray the reputation of innovator and experimentalist.
Ronny and his high powered band will get the show jumping. He has released 6 CD’s of original music, and published 3 books. Most importantly he served our country for over 30 years in the US Army Jazz Band delivering morale, community outreach and world outreach.
This world class guitar player is back with his trio for another wonderful show. Josh is on the faculty of American University, teaching improvisational Jazz, and leading the AU big band. A good friend to this venue, he’s is the epitome of the performer/educator, who has the talent and the ethos to share it with others.
