Ethan K Band at Ryles

Time to funk up some jazz tunes, jazz up some pop tunes, and pop open a can of whoop ass! It's the Ethan K Band..

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing/ hearing these cats:
Isabel Stover- vocals
Alex Lee-Clark- trumpet
Aaron Gratzmiller- tenor saxophone
Dan Fox- trombone
Myself- guitar
Brian Friedland- piano/ keys
Pat Speece- bass
Jim Johanson- drums

Rock and Roll! Or whatever the jazz equivalent of that is...

K2 @ Rumpy's Tavern

The boys are back in town- the classic father/son jazz duo is now rocking every second friday of the month, and it's about that time of the month! (Context is everything)

K2 is myself on guitar and Peter K AKA "pops' on electric bass. Party on, Pete!

K2 @ Rumpy's Tavern

It's been a long a cold, lonely winter (but maybe now the smiles will be returning to their faces, perhaps?) and we are ready to get back at it!

K2 is a double dose of vitamin K (some might say overdose) With my Pops, Peter K on vocals and bass, and myself on guitar, we will rock out like there's no tomorrow. Even though chances are pretty good there will be. It's an expression, roll with it. 

We will rock out some jazz standards and maybe some familiar non-jazz tunes (we don't discriminate) and in general are looking to behave like two wild and crazy guys!

K2 @ Rumpy's Tavern

The father/son duo strikes again! Winter's always a good time to grab a warm drink (I'm sure Troy makes good warm drinks, this bartender can do anything), and curl up, or cut loose. Or do whatever it is you do when you rock out to some live jazz, because although this is a father/son duo, this ain't your grandpa's jazz. We throw down.

K2 @ Rumpy's Tavern

My pops and I have our nose back on the grind stone learning new (and old) tunes/songs, to keep making something fresh for our cozy Berkshires crowd. As always, Peter K (Aka Pops) on 5 string bass and vocals, myself playing guitar, and maybe sing a couple as well. We may or not have a special surprise guest....

K2 is Back!! At the Starving Artist Cafe

After nearly a year- long hiatus, K2, the musical collaboration between me and my dad will pick up again, with pops on electric bass and myself on guitar, both doing a little vocals. We cover a wide range of jazz and stuff (rock, funk, latin) and have as much fun as possible as we explore our shared musical interests.

The next day I will helping Dan Fox as he hosts the Morningside Music Studio Summer Jazz Weekend Retreat in Colrain, MA. It should be a blast! Here's more info:
