The Jazz Cats from Sussex School

Tuesday, May 10 // Doors at 6:30 PM // Show at 7 PM // $10 We are an ensemble called the Jazz Cats from Sussex School, an independent progressive school here in Missoula. We are a group of eight members in grades third, seventh, and eighth on bass, guitar, drums, vocals, and keys. We have been working together for seven months now. We are performing seven songs during our performance at the ZACC, with a large variety of song types ranging from arrangements of pop to rock – from slow, to upbeat, to fast. This show will be our culminating performance for all of the work we have done this year. We really hope to see you there! Watch out because the Jazz Cats are about to get jazzy!

Naomi Moon Siegel Trio featuring Ed Stalling & Tommy Sciple, + Opener Jenn Adams

Sunday, May 8 // Doors at 7 PM // Show at 7:30 PM // $15 Trombonist and composer Naomi Moon Siegel has “crafted a truly unique aesthetic, combining elements of straight-ahead, fusion and modern jazz with world-music flavors in a way that sounds entirely of the 21st century” (JAZZIZ). A recipient of the Montana Arts Council Artist Innovation Award, Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award, and member of the 4th Mutual Mentorship for Musicians cohort, she has released two albums as a bandleader to critical acclaim. Playing music inspired by the Black American Music tradition, Siegel will be joined by local phenoms Tommy Sciple on bass and Ed Stalling on drums. Twisting the corners of folk, blues, and jazz into immediately personal songs, Jenn Adams is internationally recognized for her distinctive sound and well-crafted songwriting. With an extensive wealth of experience and craft, her songs scale a diverse foundation that refuse to blend into the ordinary. Sparsely decorated, bluesy ballads are her trademark but by no means a limitation. Known for her warm and inclusive live performances, she is widely regarded as one of the most genuine artists on the acoustic circuit.
