Flacco's Bizarre Adventure

Saturday - April, 30 @ 10:00pm

Flacco's Bizarre Adventure is a quintet under the direction of guitarist and composer Keenan Ruffin. The group aims to explore his interests in modern jazz, swing, New Music, and other contemporary styles. With influences spanning from the serialist work of Schoenberg, the earthy yet cerebral jazz of Mingus, and the colorful buoyancy of Tyler, the Creator, Ruffin aims to make sense of these possibilities, with the slight chance uncovering what's left to be explored in modern musical practice.
Keenan Ruffin- Guitar/Compositions
Scott Kiefner- Bass
Alex Ouellette- Drums
Max Richardson- Trumpet
Jett Tachibana- Alto Saxophone
