Headliner : Bryan Murray Trio Bryan
Murray – Saxophones Adam Linz – Bass Dan Monaghan – Drummer from NYC This is a new trio featuring NYC Drummer Dan Monaghan, and Adam Linz of Fat Kid Wednesdays fame. This will blow your hair back. After 20 years of performing in the NY music scene, Bryan Murray has recently relocated to Apple Valley, Minnesota with his family. With an established background and education in jazz, Bryan pushed boundaries and led the “avant country” band Bryan and the Haggards, focusing on the songwriting of country music legend Merle Haggard. He has also been a regular sideman on other projects including Moppa Elliott’s Unspeakable Garbage, and Jon Lundbom’s Big Five Chord, and had the opportunity to join the “Love This Giant” tour with David Byrne and St. Vincent. Some of Bryan’s latest projects utilize his prepared saxophone the “balto!” and are recorded under the pseudonym Balto Exclamationpoint.
