Fat Kid Wednesdays with opening set by The Steve Kenny Trio
March 12, 2022 @ 7:30 PM - 11:00 PM$20
Fat Kid Wednesdays:
Michael Lewis – Saxophones
Adam Linz – Bass
JT Bates – Drum
A remarkable jazz trio from Minneapolis whos members have been playing music together since high school, and have been performing under this name for almost 3 decades. The saxophonist, Michael Lewis, the bassist, Adam Linz, and the drummer, JT Bates, have that preternatural mutual responsiveness that comes from an instinctive sympathy, but is developed over time through work, and their exhilarating performance last night revealed both the depth of their individual artistry and the symbiotic wonder of their interplay.
