The Courage4 plays jazz standards – but not with your typical instrumentation.
Pianist and vocalist Martine Courage leads the group, which also includes Rob Frayne on tenor sax and Fender bass, Mike Essoudry on drums – and Laura Nerenberg on violin. They play their own arrangements in an atmospheric, grooving style: not like your typical jazz quartet. “It’s not a pop band, it’s not a jazz band, but it’s somewhere in the middle. But it’s jazzy in the process,” says Frayne.


~~ Drumswamp *** Oct 26 ($15/20):

Rob Frayne (tenor sax)
Petr Cancura (tenor sax)
Linsey Wellman (bari sax)
Alvaro de Minaya (perc)
Liz Hanson (perc)
Mike Essoudry (drums)
Don Cummings (electric piano)
Vince Halfhide (guitar)
Megan Jerome (voice)
Scott White (acoustic bass)

Rob Frayne’s Drumswamp is a bigger drummier all-star cast of 10 cool players. We love Rhythm. Each piece with custom 3-drum grooves incl. New Orleans second line, Samba, Afro-Cuban and Funky Maracatu. New compositions that will give the audience (and band!) a journey into groove, soulful arrangements, songs both happy and sad.


~~ Spirituals Nov 9 *** ($10/15):

Rob Frayne (tenor sax)
Roddy Ellias (guitar)
Michel Delage (drums)
Don Cummings (Hammond Organ)

Old timey spirituals and spiritual jazz.
FUN FACT: Will be a live recording/live mini documetary ft. CD’s, & last but not least, % of Proceeds to Greta Thunberg!
