Trio Uncontrollable featuring Dan Balmer

Unpredictable, unfettered, uncontrolled, deconstructed, groove-based, soul-based, solo-based, individual teamwork jazz and beyond.

Trio Uncontrollable brings together three unique musical voices from differing disciplines that results in always surprising, always in-the-moment, jazz creativity. Relying on Balmer’s compositions, the band takes them places neither he nor anyone else would have ever dreamed or imagined. Combining the propulsive power of Jones’s uncontainable drum set mastery, the super fat grooves of bass virtuoso, Erskine, and Balmer’s broad palette of guitar wizardry the trio has wowed, moved, amazed, and destroyed audiences for the last two years.

Sunday 8/21 6:50 p.m.
