Kuumbwa Jazz Center

Bryn Loosley and the Back Pages
45th Anniversary tribute to The Band's self-titled 1969 album

$5 - 9pm - All ages 

Bryn Loosley is a teacher and a songwriter in Santa Cruz, California. His 2008 debut, The Wrecker, was hailed by the Santa Cruz Sentinel as "a quiet stunner of an album that puts him, artistically, in the league of such better known singer/songwriters as Josh Ritter and Freedy Johnston." His second album, Blood Year, contains 12 songs, one inspired by each month of the year.

"The Band" 45th Anniversary tribute show - 9/13

We're very excited to annouce our next show: Saturday September 13th at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center, we'll perform all of The Band's second, self-titled ablum in a bang-up tribute concert to one of our favorite records of all time. We're hard at work learning "Rag Mama Rag", "Whispering Pines", "King Harvest Will Surely Come", "Cripple Creek", "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", and all the others, and can't wait to share with you. Expect a few special guests along the way too. This is going to be fun.

Following our release party last Saturday in Santa Cruz, the new album "Blood Year" is now available for download on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and other online retailers. Here's a link to the iTunes page for the new album:
