The NYC-based band SPOKE (pictured) is coming to St. Louis to perform at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, September 16 at Parkway United Church of Christ, 2841 N Ballas Rd.

SPOKE features St. Louis native and SIUE alumnus Dan Loomis (also of The Wee Trio) on bass, along with trombonist Andy Hunter, saxophonist Justin Wood, and drummer Danny Fischer.

Formed in 2005, the group has released two albums of “original, genre- spanning music drawing on diverse sources including chamber music, Charles Mingus, Chinese pop, and the Beatles," and recently performed at the Macau Venetian Jazz and Blues festival in China. The individual members also have worked with a variety of well-known musicians and ensembles, including Richard Bona, the Mingus Dynasty, TS Monk, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and others.

The concert is free and open to the public, and will include two sets, at 6:30 p.m. and 7:45 p.m.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
