On January 24th, 2017 (7:00-9:00pm) Bakersfield Jazz Workshop will present Typical Sisters in concert.
Greg Uhlmann’s Typical Sisters is not, as the name might suggest, a Twisted Sister cover band. In fact, the improvising trio of guitar, bass, and drums draws equally on influences from rock music, singer songwriters, minimalism and a rich history of American improvisers. The band’s music has been described as “tonally and dynamically expeditious while texturally soft and inviting, a comfortable challenge that easily entices.” (Scottie McNiece, International Anthem). Its members play and compose for a wide range of settings. Current projects include indie rock bands, Fell Runner and Marrow; improvisation-based groups, Ba(SH) and Rooms Trio; chamber group, River Song Quintet; and jazz singer, Kurt Elling’s band.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear a current, nationally recognized ensemble perform.
