Jon Wirtz Trio
Jon Wirtz Trio
Progressive Old School. What does that even mean? For this quartet, it means providing a soulful, funky sound that is heavily based on groove, just as bands like The Meters and James Brown did in years past. But it also means taking those classic, danceable elements, and adding a few new tricks. Featuring the excellent and at times shredding guitar work of Taylor Scott, the deep pocket of bassist Todd Edmunds, the tastefully funky beats of drummer Eric Imbrosciano, and kaleidoscope of aural colors provided by keyboardist and primary writer Jon Wirtz, "Space Orphan" will hit you in your soul and keep you dancing at the same time. Collectively, the musicians have played stages all over the world, including Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Red Rocks, The Late Show With David Letterman, Ellen, and various venues/festivals throughout Europe.
