Pete's Bandwagons

- The Pete Harrison Trio; This is probably the best rhythm section in town, swings like crazy.  Straight ahead, bop, Latin, fusion, anything that has to do w/jazz.  Occasionally I'll sing a tune or two--I'm getting back into that.

 - The Rocket City Jazz Orchestra; a traditional 17-piece big band playing both the great tunes of the Swing Era, and the modern arrangements of today's writers.  This is the best big band in town.  We play concert gigs, such as Panoply, the Bridge Street Xmas Tree Lighting, and the Monday Night Concerts In The Park; dances for the Huntsville Swing Dance Society and the UAH Swing Dance Club, and weddings, parties, etc.  It's a fun band with good soloists, and lots of great, familiar big band music.  We rehearse @ Faith Lutheran Church on Monday's, 7:00 - 9:30 pm.

  - Quiet Storm;  Jim Bradas is the leader on tenor, alto, and soprano saxes; I play keyboards and have several sets of material programmed into my Mac computer so that the band has all sorts of backing tracks and sound very full for two guys without sounding "cheesy-electronic"; the sound is very eclectic; straight ahead jazz, fusion, funk, Latin, rock, R-n-B, Bossa Novas, ballads, originals, etc.  The group can be as loud or as soft as the venue owner needs it to be.  It's a great sound, very "smooth jazz" modern, with a good mix of the more traditional style in there; the footprint of the band is very small so it could fit into a restaurant or club like the Heritage Club, Providence Cafe, Sam and Greg's, or wherever.
