SUMMER COURTYARD CONCERT SERIES

HAPPY HOLIDAY


Los GatosSALSA!
Los Gatos

Pete Siers, drummer and leader of the renowned Latin jazz combo Los Gatos, is a powerful, intensely physical and dynamic player on timbales, coro and percussion. In addition to Siers, the other four members of the group, Cary Kocher, vibes and coro; Kurt Krahnke, bass; Brian Di Blassio, piano and coro; and Al Di Blassio, congas, vocals and percussion, are all world class performers. They have each toured extensively and have been performing in Los Gatos for over 10 years. With Siers, this group’s rhythm section is remarkable, but for many listeners, the distinctive feature of Los Gatos is Cary Kocher’s vibraphone sound, which can send a cool flow down your back on a hot summer day.  This concert is part of the UMHS Summer Courtyard Concert Series presented by Gifts of Art.

George Bedard is a supremely talented guitar player and a longtime fixture on the Ann Arbor roots music scene.  He’s been blowing the roof off of gin joints and folk clubs all over the Detroit/Ann Arbor area for more than 30 years. Continuing to excite crowds at regional festivals and clubs, his Kingpins band is famous for bringing fans of all ages to their feet through the swinging rockabilly originals and high-energy blues, swing, and rock tunes.  Bedard and drummer Rich Dishman are fortunate to have the extraordinarily talented bassist and founding member of the Macpodz, Brennan Andes,  with them for this performance as part of the UMHS Summer Courtyard Concert Series presented by Gifts of Art.
