Apres Jazz Trio

Saturday - April, 30 @ 6:00pm

Peter Littman (Tenor Saxophone) grew up in Colorado’s mountain jazz scene. He took up the saxophone at nine, emulating heroes like Hank Mobley, George Coleman, and Paul Desmond. He cut his teeth studying with Eric Alexander, and playing at restaurants and clubs in Colorado, Maine, and New York, honing a distinct cool bop sound.

Stephen Boe (Drummer)  has played everything from Jazz to Classic Rock in his decade of drumming. Dedicated to Jazz in the past four years, he has taken inspiration from Steely Dan drummer Steve Gaddhowever, and Dave Weckl (who played for Chick Corea) to hone a distant blues, and Latin groove.

Finn Berquist (Guitar) is self taught, inspired by Jimi Hendrix and BB King, he developed a rock and blues style. He was Introduced to jazz while playing Trumpet as a kid and has revitalized his passion for the genre through guitar, adapting his style to create a rich hybrid sound.
