Drew Nugent

Drew Nugent is a jazz musician, hailing from the city of Philadelphia, and bandleader of the group "Drew Nugent & the Midnight Society". Nugent, as well as his ensemble, specializes in playing traditional or "Hot" Jazz, from the 1900s to the 1940s, with the main area of focus being the Jazz Age - the Roaring 20s. His main instruments of choice are the piano, trumpet and vocals. He is also known for his playing of an odd contraption called the"Hot Tea-Kettle", or the "Teapot Trumpet" as some fans have named it. Drew made his debut in 2005, at age 19, on the classic NPR radio show "A Prairie Home Companion", where he placed 3rd on the "Talent from 12-20 Contest"

Tumbledown House

“Launched in the drizzly climes of Portland, Oregon by smoky-toned singer Gillian Wolfe and producer, guitarist and harmony vocalist Tyler Ryan Miller, Tumbledown House has thrived since relocating to the Bay Area in 2012, honing a sinewy, speakeasy sound with some of the region’s finest musicians. Focusing on beautifully crafted original songs, the band balances spacious, loose-limbed arrangements with precisely calibrated dynamics and tightly coiled energy… Tumbledown House brings together instrumentation that evokes the small combos of the swing era, while delivering songs that feel as if they were composed the day after tomorrow.” - Yerba Buena Gardens Festival, 2019 San Francisco songwriting deviants, Tumbledown House, have never been easy to describe

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
