Don Pride Quartet

Saturday - May, 05 @ 7:00pm

Don has played at Blue with such groups as the Mark Tipton Quartet, Tracy Ullman, and Zapion among many others. The Don Pride Band will perform a mix of their original compositions, music by Monk, Brubeck, Ellington, Miles Davis, Frank Zappa and John Abercrombie as well as some jazz standards done with a twist. Their music is hard to categorize, but is a mix of jazz, rock, funk, and classical. If you mixed Jimi Hendrix, John Coltrane, John Abercrombie, Frank Zappa, Joni Mitchell, Igor Stravinsky, John Adams, and Phil Keaggy in a blender, you might get the Don Pride band.

The members of the DPB are:

Jon Schomaker- saxes, flute, vocals and percussion
Don Pride - guitars and vocals
Steve Footer - bass
Carl Menard - drums and percussion”
