Black Diamond at the Heartwood Sound Stage

VERY excited to be performing at Gainesville's newest venue/recording space. Dave Melosh and his team have worked tirelessly over the past year to convert their former recording studio into the ultimate venue. I have heard nothing but great things about the sound, energy, and atmosphere of this beautiful new space. Please join us for our last night of the Florida tour!

Matt Ulery's Pollinator opening for Rebirth Brass Band

I think of Matt Ulery as one of Chicago's most inventive composers and improvisors in the City. His music never fails to invoke deep imagery and emotion. This new ensemble of his glances to early 20th century rag, rent party music, and southern brass sentiment, all with the undeniable Ulery touch.
