CELEBRATING 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY
10 Years Presenting the Finest in Jazz!
Sept. 28-Sept. 29 SEX MOB
Steven Bernstein, Briggan Krauss, Tony Scherr, Kenny Wollesen
Sex Mob is a band out of time: a smartly old-fashioned quartet of world-class musicians with a satchel full of charts. Sex Mob is a band of the now: post-modern waltzes mutating into dub-echoed free jazz. Sex Mob is social music: a rollicking midnight set with clatter and drinks and a band. Sex Mob is a happy contradiction: an experimental jazz outfit whose music has slid readily into the mainstream via Saturday Night Live, MTV, and National Public Radio.
Nat Hentoff writing in Jazz Times had this to say On trumpet, and as a composer and leader, Steven Bernstein is uncategorizable." And Ben Ratliff writing in the The New York Times says, Steven Bernstein, a trumpeter and rogue historian of jazz, believes that jazz should be closely associated with fun and also shock." And Isaac Guzman, New York Daily News says, Sex Mob is on a mission to make jazz fun again."
Sets at 8PM and 10PM.
