Spyro Gyra – The Godfathers of Contemporary instrumental jazz join us for the annual summer excursion. Heritage band with lots of respect from the music community. Spyro Gyra has a long history as a well-known contemporary jazz group. Most of the listeners will remember their famous album “Morning Dance”, their first album with a major label. The title song has still heavy rotation on contemporary jazz stations. A generation later Spyro Gyra is even now in music business.

The group was founded by Jay Beckenstein (sax) and Jeremy Wall (keyboards) in the 70’s. Jeremy Wall who left the group is now professor of jazz in NY. Keyboardist Tom Schuman replaced Jeremy Wall as keyboardist while Wall stayed as an assistant producer and occasional composer. He even wrote the song “The Lowdown” for this new album. Further members are now Julio Fernandez (guitar/vocals), Scott Ambush (bass) and Ludwig Afonso (drums).

Down to the Bone’s music encompasses all that is funky, soulful, and jazzy. As founder and producer of the band, Stuart Wade, states, “Its all about the groove… that is what gets people dancing, their toes tapping, and their heads nodding.” Far from your run of the mill contemporary jazz chart-topper, Down to the Bone is fronted by DJ extraordinaire Stuart Wade, who deftly mixes samples and prerecorded instrument tracks with the live performance of the rest of band. Wade formed the band in 1996, but Down to the Bone did not become Wade’s full time project until 2001.

Throughout its career, the band has produced eight critically acclaimed albums including From Manhattan to Staten, the chart topping The Urban Grooves, and their most recent effort, Future Boogie . With annual gigs being a major part of Down to the Bone’s success, the band has the chance to get straight down to the raw groove with their audience.
