Brennan Connors & Stray Passage (featuring Tim Russell subbing in for Geoff Brady on percussion) will be playing Friday, 5/23 at Thorps Salon for the first ever “Madison Jazz Crawl“! We’re thrilled to play along side our buddies John Christensen & Devin Drobka as they shape-shift into Lesser Lakes Trio! The first show that Stray Passage ever played was at Audio For the Arts with John & Devin (then performing with Luke Polipnick as Deconunisms). This year I have been the house bass player at The Mason Lounge every Tuesday night from 9-12 with the 5 Points Jazz Collective. Charlie Painter, jazz guitarist & 5-Points band leader, will be performing with his Trio at One Barrel Brewing. If you’re around for the late sets, don’t forget to swing by Alchemy Cafe to hear saxophonist Tony Barba guest with Paddy Cassidy & El Clan Destino!
Come on out ‘n bop around! Celebrate Jazz in Madison & the wonderful, unique local establishments found on Schenk’s Corners!
Brennan Connors (sax) leads Stray Passage to it’s first show this Monday, 8pm at Audio For the Arts! Stray Passage will feature Brian Grimm on cello and Geoff Brady (Glacier, Yid Vicious) on kit. We look forward to sharing the set with Deconunisms, a killer free jazz trio featuring Luke Polipnick (guitar), Devin Drobka (drums), & John Christensen (bass).
