    Fat Babies Jazz Band
  • Four Other Brothers

    Four Other Brothers

The first concert performers will be the Fat Babies from Chicago, a band formed in 2010 that is becoming a huge draw on the traditional jazz festival circuit, performing for the first time on the MJS stage. The second concert will feature the Reuben Ristrom Group from Minneapolis. Ristrom’s several decades of experience include night clubs, jazz festivals, concerts, shows, recording sessions, strolling ensembles, solo guitar or banjo and more. The series will close with the first Madison appearance of the Four Other Brothers, a unique group of four skilled trumpet players playing the music of Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Freddie Hubbard, Duke Ellington and much more. The Four Other Brothers are all professors at Illinois universities who perform with an exceptional three-piece rhythm section (bass, piano, and drums).
