Jazz Night This Saturday

DennisContreras&Friends_webJazz Night presents Dennis Contreras and friends, a five-piece string band featuring Kirstin Contreras on flute and woodwinds. David Strassberg is a Union Symphony violinist and excellent folk fiddler and jazz player. Brad Bailey, on mandolin, is a fine Charlotte jazz player with an eclectic sound. Troy Conn is a fixture on the Charlotte jazz scene and his guitar playing has been featured in the Blumethal’s concert series “The Jazz Room.” The group is rounded out by USO bassist and Union Jazz director Dennis Contreras on the string bass.
They will be performing favorites from the Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli collection through the more contemporary stylings of the David Grisman Quintet. (L to R)David Strassberg, Troy Conn, Kirstin Contreras, Dennis Contreras and Brad Bailey (not pictured)
