Hoaxer with an Opening set by the Chris Bates Good Vibes Trio

April 30 @ 7:30 pm 11:30 pm

Hoaxer was born out of a series of performances at Jazz Central Studios, Studio Z and the Twin Cities Jazz Festival, which led to their debut CD “Crash Test”, which had consistent radio charting according to Jazz Week. The group has remained together for 5+ years and its members, who were somewhat obscure local musicians have become household names in Twin Cities Jazz despite all still being firmly in their 20’s. The group plays a special brand of cohesive high-energy originals Jazz that is forward thinking and full of compositional and playin g”chops”, while remeining firmly rooted in the Jazz idiom.



Will Kjeer – Piano

Peter Goggin – Alto Saxophone

Charlie Lincoln – Bass

Edmund Catlin – Drums

7:30pm Opening Set

The Chris Bates Good Vibes Trio

The Good Vibes Trio is a set of three of the very best rhythm section players in the Twin Cities who formed this group several years ago and has performed festivals, all the major Jazz venues in Minnesota, and recorded a very well reviewed amazing CD on Shifting Paradigm Records.

The group features :

Chris Bates – Bass

Dave Hagedorn – Vibraphone

Phil Hey – Drums

“…there is something inherently charming and accessible about the shifting, sifting trade-off of lead and supportive roles among the trio, which turns a potential weakness — three essentially percussive instruments without the harmonic versatility of a horn or piano — into a signature virtue.” –Britt Robson, StarTribune
