Don Pride Quartet

Saturday - March, 17 @ 6:00pm

Don has played at Blue with such groups as the Mark Tipton Quartet, Tracy Ullman, and Zappion among many others. Come and hear what Don has brewed up especially for this debut performance at Blue by the Don Pride Band. For their first performance at Blue, the DPB 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”
