Jaz Sawyer is a San Francisco native who began playing the drums at the age of 2, living in the Haight/Ashbury area. His style has been described by Offbeat Magazine as, “Explosive, yet tactically precise.” Jaz possesses an eclectic and refined personal style of drumming that stems from his deep roots in his Classical, Jazz, West-African and Afro-Caribbean musical training. His band features Bay Area heavy-hitters Aaron Germain on bass, RTB3 on sax and bassoon, and the great Grant Levin on piano. Book your tickets now. This band is hot!
Vocalist Lori Carsillo is a noted presence in the Bay Area jazz scene, who sings with subtlety and sophistication. The nuance of her phrasing is constantly fresh and compelling. Her repertoire, a mix of well-known favorites and forgotten gems, draws praise from listeners as well as fellow musicians, as does her innate musical sense and down-to-earth nature. She sings with an unaffected, unpretentious style, never overreaching, and always at ease. She will be joining Jaz Sawyer and his band on stage tonight. One night only. Book your tickets now!
