MSC Dads Play Jazz, Rock & Pop @ The Underground

Jon Herington

Ken Wessel

Chris Washburne

MSC Dads Chris Washburne (trombone) and Kenny Wessel (guitar) reprise last year's successful and fun nite at The Underground with an exciting, soulful and swinging evening of Jazz, Latin, Blues and Rock. The two met in the halls of MSC last year during dropoff and found a great musical connection on the bandstand.

Joining them this evening will be guitarist and friend of MSC, Jon Herington and his dynamic blues/rock/pop trio. Jon has been Steely Dan's guitarist for a number of years and is an in-demand session musician who has played with Boz Scaggs, Michael McDonald, Madeleine Peyroux and many others. Jon's group features him on guitar and vocals, Dennis Espantman on bass and Frank Pagano on drums.

His newest release is a collection of pop-rock songs called "shine (shine, shine)"

Chris (whose son, August is in 1st grade) is a world renowned trombonist, composer and educator who has performed with many of the greats in the Latin Music world, including Tito Puente, Celia Cruz and Eddie Palmieri.

Kenny (Leo is in 4th grade) has toured and recorded throughout the world and worked with musicians as varied as Ornette Coleman, Badal Roy and Donald Fagen. Chris and Kenny will play a number of their original compositions and will be supported by Ole Matheson on saxophones, Dave Ambrosio on bass and Rob Garcia on drums.
