First United Methodist Church, Port Huron, MI
Our twenty-fifth season will open with the well-known Detroit area Pete Siers Trio. The group features clarinetist Dave Bennett, pianist Cliff Monear, and drummer Pete Siers. Yes, a couple of these names may sound familiar as they have graced our concert series with other groups previously featured. The Pete Siers Trio focuses on the iconic style of Gene Krupa and the trio he formed with clarinetist Benny Goodman and pianist Teddy Wilson. With its driving beats and high level of energy (and no bass player!), the trio puts its own twist on the swing era, drawing on the group’s diverse background and extraordinary musicianship and experience. This high-powered threesome will bring a smile to your face and a tap to your toe. Don’t miss this opportunity for some world class jazz. We’ll be looking forward to seeing you there!
