Don Pride Band

Saturday - December, 22 @ 6:00pm

Don Pride - Guitars and vocals
Jeff Taylor - Bass
Gary Gemmiti - Drums
The Don Pride Trio plays a mixture of original compositions, jazz standards, Frank Zappa compositions, re-imagined folk tunes, free jazz, and beyond. Their goal is to pursue an original sound with lots of space and room for musical excursion. Through pre-arranged musical constructs, they seek to create a sound environment for their listeners and themselves. As of this performance, they have only played together as a group for about two hours or so, but immediately felt a musical and personal kinship which we think will be fun to explore this Saturday evening. Expect this ensemble to continue to develop and evolve as time goes on, but don’t miss this first chapter of their story on this Saturday to kick off this extended Christmas weekend.
