Which Blair Project @ Owls Club
May 30 @ 10:00 pm

This Thursday, May 30th, at 10pm at Owls Club, I’ll be performing with my jazz trio, “Which Blair Project?” in our FINAL performance together. We take bop classics (e.g. Monk, Mingus, Coltrane) and add a dark, modern twist. It’s weird but melodic, filled with odd time signatures and quirky endings. I’m on drums, Nate Smith on guitar and Mike Grigsby on bass.
