The Greater Madison Jazz Consortium, WORT, & Isthmus Present:

5/23/14  STROLLIN SCHENK’S CORNERS 

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!

10/26 @ Dobra Tea 9-11pm | Brother Stripes + db pedersen/BC Grimm

IMG_5997TEA & IMPROV vs FREAKFEST 

10/26 DOBRA TEA 9-11pm

BROTHER STRIPES

DB PEDERSEN + BC GRIMM

This will prove our most challenging free improv session to date, as the Dobra Tea experimental music series takes on… Freakfest.  Your journey to the tea room will not be an easy one.  No doubt there will be endless visual entertainment & inspiration as we skronk.  Most importantly this All Hallows Eve Weekend, we celebrate the coming of Brother Stripes (more below).  Nick & Tim are exceptional performers and we gladly welcome them.  So come to Dobra – sip tea, open your ears, stay warm, and costume watch with us!

THE BROTHER STRIPES is the combined output of Nick Zoulek, Saxophonist and Percussionist Tim Russell. Their quest to produce an improvisational authenticity leads them through the depths of self discovery, constantly challenging both performer and perceiver to find commonalities in communicating this existence.
