JazTec, Momentum, Calumet Jazz Experience, and RealTime

The Jazz Club Cabaret presents hot jazz for a cool evening. The MTU jazz combos, Jaztec and Momentum will be playing both nights with the Calumet (HS) Jazz Experience joining them on Friday, the RealTime Jazz Band joining them on Saturday.

Jaztec specializes in mainstream and classic jazz with Mark Maguire on guitar, Ben Sheff on saxophone and clarinet, Jack Matheson on bass, and Sam Bredeson on drums. If funk and fusion are your ticket, then Momentum can fill your bill. They feature Nick Black on tenor sax, Britanny VanderWall on trombone, Josh Mayo on guitar, Laura Black on keyboards, Jack Kelly on bass, and Troy Bouman on drums.

The Calumet Jazz Experience is under the direction of Scott Veenstra. In its fifth year of existence, the Jazz Experience allows young players to explore all styles of jazz, jazz improvisation and the development of original compositions by band members.

Closing the concert on Saturday will be the veteran jazz group RealTime featuring Charles White on keyboards, Mike Irish on guitar, Dan Komarzec on bass, and Adam Johnson on drums.

Concessions are available from Mu Beta Psi throughout the concert.
