Many New Shows and the Introduction of “Bonzo Squad” and “Earth Tones”

After a long weekend with a graduation, a birthday, a full moon, a JC Brooks show, and a wedding gig, I have decided to unveil my two new projects.

Bonzo Squad has performed recently at Hostel Earphoria, Goose Island, and the Tonic Room. Drawing from my Bumpus and JC Brooks experience, I’m going to front a high energy funk band that emphasizes harmony and tight pockets. Our next show will be Friday, July 18th at Chicago’s historic Double Door.

On May 30th, Earth Tones was introduced. This ensemble blends classical, jazz, bluegrass, and folk music all into one with two horns, full rhythm, percussion, and strings. The second performance will be Sunday, August 24th at the Bucktown Arts Festival

Olmstead’s Whistle Update

Currently mixing with Brian Schwab at his studio in Westridge. Look out for some new music in late June/early July.

Also, catch my Graduate Recital at DePaul School of Music on May 30th at 7:00 PM. I’ve invited a string quartet and a clarinetist to join up with my ensemble…beautiful music to sooth your eardrums.

M13 at the Green Mill

Well alright! Tonight is the night that Aaron McEvers outlet “M13″ takes the stage at the Green Mill in Chicago. Neil Tesser, the Chicago jazz journalist, did a nice write up about the concert tonight.

Three sets starting at 9 PM; $6.
