KZUM presents Stransky Park Concert Series 2017
This week we bring you Kellison Quartet
I came into the music thing as a bassist, and I still identify most with that instrument. The Kellison Quartet is a wonderful way to keep up my chops while playing with some of the finest instrumentalists in the state. Jesse McBee (trumpet), Larell Ware (drums), Dan Beard (guitar), and I formed this group …with the intention of bringing a true fusion (funk/rock/jazz) band to the scene. We are almost exclusively booking this group in the realm of performing arts and workshops. We are a Touring Artist for the Nebraska Arts Council, and we regularly perform school workshops (separate workshops for jazz band, choirs, and elementary kids) in addition to our evening performances. – Lucas Kellison
