Admission is $10, 
students, seniors, and past series performers half price. 

A mainstay on the main stage of the Los Angeles area’s creative music scene, multifaceted and multigifted multi-instrumentalist/composer Brad Dutz celebrates the release of the new CD by his tentet, Ten Technicians Titled Ted, with a live set of his striking original compositions. The music, intricate and sophisticated while characterized by Dutz’s trademark whimsy and eccentricity, manages to be wonderfully clear, transparent, delicate, and buoyant despite the larger size of the ensemble. The ensemble itself is made up of some of the most accomplished musicians anywhere, making the undeniably challenging composed material sound light, grooving, and effortless while supplying constantly engaging and virtuosic solos—most of the players on the recording, many of them longtime Dutz veterans, will be on hand to render the demanding but delightful music live: Dutz himself on percussion (mainly hand drums and mallet instruments in this case), Chris Wabich on drums and percussion, William Roper on tuba and supplying his unpredictable spoken word improvisations, Charles Fernandez on bassoon, Kim Richmond on woodwinds, Jasper Dutz on woodwinds, Glen Berger on oboe, John Fumo on trumpets, Peter Jacobson on cello, and Trey Henry on bass. Their set promises to be something of an event!

Coleman Hughes found a passion for music at a young age, starting to play the violin, the piano, and the drums, at ages 3, 5, and 8, respectively. By middle school, he settled on the trombone as a primary instrument, and went on to participate in elite high school all-star bands like the Grammy Jazz Ensemble, and the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra. Along the way he played and/or recorded with the Michael Dease big band, the Christian Mcbride big band, the Mingus big band and many others. More recently, he has blended his love of hip hop with his experience in jazz, and now raps and plays trombone with a live band under the name Coldman.”
Founded by Max Boiko and originating in Fort Lauderdale FL, VGM Dance Party is a 5 piece ensemble dedicated to paying homage to the compositional talents of late 20th century Japanese Video Game Composers, [such as Junichi Masuda (Pokemon) Jun Ishikawa (Kirby) Manami Matsumae (Mega Man) and many more] in the context of a live Jazz Fusion band!

Bite Trio @ Whynot Jazz Club

Bite Trio is a New York based jazz ensemble with accidental--but not arbitrary--folk influence. Consisting of guitarist/bandleader David Kuhn, woodwind multi-instrumentalist Jasper Dutz, and bassist Max Bezanson, the band owes as much to the Jimmy Guiffre Trio as to the Beatles. Bite Trio thrives on constant interaction, spontaneous, lush textures, and a deep sense of service to song. The band has been hard at work for over a year now, playing in many different venues, restaurants, and at parties. However their tight, warm, sound is not just simply a result of constant rehearsal. It is easy to see the joy the members get just by being together both on and off stage.

The band can usually be heard on Fridays entertaining diners at their namesake restaurant, Bite (211 East 14th Street in Manhattan. L train to 3rd Avenue). However, the band is looking forward to bringing its music to a much wider audience. To contact the band for bookings of any kind please visit the booking page on this site or contact David Kuhn directly at gdrkguitar@gmail.com or at 6155004972.

To hear a brief reel of the band, listen below.
