Musician

Russ Lorenson

Born:

A terrific voice. Charisma to spare. A delightful raconteur. Impeccable musical taste and vocal phrasing. Unassuming nice guy. They all apply to Russ Lorenson, whose burnished tenor has thrilled audiences throughout the US and Europe.

Since his breakout club debut in 2005, Russ Lorenson has established a reputation as one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s leading interpreters of jazz standards.  As a singer, he is equally at home whether entertaining a concert hall audience or performing in the more intimate cabaret setting.  With comparisons to Tony Bennett, Mel Tormé, and Chet Baker, Lorenson has a voice one savors and remembers. It's no wonder he's called "San Francisco's Favorite Crooner."

Darin Brown

Darin Brown is a NY-based piano player, singer and songwriter. He has a B.A. from Manhattan School of Music and has toured the world with Enrique Iglesias and throughout Europe as the musical director for Willy DeVille. Darin’s current project features new songs co-written with the late Doug McCormick who wrote for Paul Anka, Dusty Springfield, Gladys Knight and Roberto Carlos.

Darin’s early love for music started with honky-tonk and boogie-woogie piano sessions with his self-taught father. Despite classical lessons, he found a deep connection with the Great American Songbook by playing through the many fake books in the piano bench. That love was re-ignited when Darin and Doug McCormick began their journey as writing partners.

Bongard

Born:

After years of living out of a suitcase, music studies in Germany and New York City and numerous theater engagements across Europe, Andreas BONGARD has now reached two artistic journey goals at once: Making Berlin his home and realising his long held desire to record his own music. His first EP PROLOGUE marks the starting signal of him introducing the world to his very own sound. Rooted in pop music and the ever perceptible lightness of jazz, his clear and multi-faceted voice combines tonal brilliance with expressive storytelling. The line-up featuring a jazz trio (piano, double bass, drums) plus Hammond B3-organ and other specials, his music transports you to an evening in a New York jazz bar, or straight into the lush soundtrack of a Hollywood movie - all the while never losing its subtlety

Jua

Born:

Incredible how it’s been over ten years since Jua Howard was making quite a name for himself in neo-soul circles, crooning in velvety tenor tones reminiscent of Luther Vandross and Donny Hathaway in clubs from New York City to London. “Anticipation”, his 2007 self-released debut CD of mostly original mid-tempo tunes and ballads, was picking up play on Smooth Jazz and R&B stations. Yet Jua, who uses only his first name professionally (Swahili for “sun”), was having second thoughts about his musical direction. The Chicago-born singer says, “With the R&B neo-soul scene, everything started to sound the same.” While living in the Washington D.C

Brad Allen

Singer-songwriters are rare in the world of jazz, and even more so when the songwriter is a drummer. “It’s clear to me how everything I’ve done in my life has lead me to where I am right now in my music career,” says Allen. “I spent several years writing songs in other genres including folk, pop, rock, country and alternative. Those experiences definitely influenced my jazz writing. I want to write catchy, fun, interesting tunes that people will remember – tunes that other artists might also want to perform.” “I grew up in a small town in Nebraska. Not exactly a hotbed of jazz
