The Tim Whalen Quartet had an incredible night at Dukem Jazz this past Thursday Febuary 6th. In addition to Tim, this group features some of DC's top musicians, Tedd Baker on tenor saxophone, Zack Pride on bass, and CV Dashiell III on drums. Keep an eye out for this group, both on stage and in the studio!
I had an incredible week last week at the Kennesaw State University School of Music in Atlanta, where the student orchestra played my arrangements of the music of The Who. We also had a 4 piece rock band, which I was a part of, playing piano and singing all the songs. Pictured above (L to R) are Marc Miller (bass, Atlanta), me, my good friend Jamie Ryan (drums, Champaign IL), and Trey Wright (guitar, Atlanta). These guys killed it! Speaking of killing it, the students absolutely blew me away! They played my orchestrations with total professionalism and musicality, and they made it an unforgettable experience. To top it off, the we had a sold out crowd, and they went ballistic! It's rare to play a concert where you get several standing ovations throughout a concert. Unforgettable!
