BANDS AND PERFORMERS
Tom Rigney & Flambeau
Berkeley-based Tom Rigney has, over the past two decades, become one of the premiere blues and roots music violinists in the world. His high-energy, virtuosic playing and his commanding spirited stage presence are hallmarks of Rigney’s style.
Stephanie Trick & Paolo Alderighi
Stephanie Trick (from St. Louis), a leading exponent of stride piano, and Paolo Alderighi (from Milan), one of Italy’s foremost jazz pianists, collaborate on four-hands piano projects dedicated to classic jazz, preparing arrangements of songs from the swing era, as well as drawing from the ragtime and blues repertoire.

Brian Holland and Danny Coots began performing together in 2010 after spending decades individually on the jazz and ragtime circuits honing their skills on piano and drums, respectively.
Titan Hot Seven
With a sound all their own, The Titan Hot Seven light up the stage with a jazz passion that sweeps through the audience igniting fun, excitement and joy. There’s everything from ballads to hard hitting, swinging traditional Jazz. Read More>
