Bob Sweet TrioPIANO JAZZ
Bob Sweet Trio Bob Sweet Trio listen

Tad Weed is a powerhouse of a pianist who has performed with some of the greatest names in jazz including John Patitucci, Mundell Lowe, Carmen McCrae, Charles Lloyd and Woody Herman. Bandleader Bob Sweet (drums) and Kurt Krahnke (bass) have been part of the southeastern Michigan jazz scene for decades, so this is piano jazz at its finest. Anything might happen when they get together, but the performance is always fueled by creative group interplay. Whether they're playing jazz standards or original pieces, you can count on a fresh, dynamic sound, distinctively flavored with the soul of the Detroit jazz tradition.

CounterpointHOLIDAY HARMONIES
Counterpoint

Come enjoy some of your Christmas favorites with the local band Counterpoint. They are named Counterpoint because they often take two separate melodies and perform them simultaneously as one song. Performing their holiday concert with Gifts of Art for over 20 years now, their blended vocal harmonies and refreshing arrangements of seasonal favorites have become a UMHS tradition. With Debbie Colesa, Deborah Davis, and Laurie Williams on vocals, Peter Tchoryk on trumpet and vocals, guitarist Dave Karl and bass player Daniel McConnell, their full bodied yet easy listening sound is enlivening. Guest performers often make appearances, and the band brings song lyrics, extra percussion instruments and bells for audience members to join in on the fun.
