You guessed it–this is the band to visit if you want to hear some classic jazz. This will be the group’s second time at our Porchfest, and we couldn’t be happier to have them back. In the group includes Dave Laub (Tenor Sax), Glenn Oremus (Tenor Sax), Joe Oldenburg (Bass), Linda Li (Drums), Brent Canova (Guitar). If we’re lucky, some of their other group members will also join them. Find out more about them here.
This will be the third year that Rae Miller and Friends will be attending Porchfest. They are an indy singer/songwriter band and also do a few covers as well. Their group consists of three members. Rae Miller does guitar and vocals, and has been playing in the area since 2011. His first CD came out in 2012 and he’s currently working on the next one, which you can check out here. Andy Titus plays the bass, mandolin, guitar, cajon, percussion, and vocals. He recently moved to the area from Portland, OR, and you can hear how much heart he puts into his music in every song. Sara Wright does vocals and percussion. She is a talented songwriter with a beautiful and gentle singing voice…maybe we’ll even get to see her dance. Check out the band at raemillermusic.com
We are happy to have this band at Porchfest 2015! Con Brio Trio consists of three members: Bria Schecker (flute), Brad Garone (guitar), and Adrienne Short (violin). Bria and Brad first started the band around five years ago and moved to Boulder around 2 years ago, and then Adrienne joined the group to continue the trio’s legacy. Con Brio Trio are originally from Boston, Massachusetts. They do Classical Covers of Classic Hits, Jazz, and Gypsy Jazz. Be sure to look at their website! This will be their second year at Porchfest.
