Vibraphonist, bassist, composer, pianist, educator and creative adventurer, BILL WARE’s genre-bending career, well into its fourth decade, has been nothing short of riveting. A founding member of the Jazz Passengers and Groove Collective, he’s also collaborated with Steely Dan, John Zorn, JD Parran, Marc Ribot, Bobby Sanabria, Deborah Harry, the BBC Concert Orchestra, Chico Mendoza, Bobby Previte, Joe Henderson, Jerome Harris, the Buffalo Philharmonic, the Minnesota Symphony, Elvis Costello, Arturo O’Farrill, Andy Summers, Marshall Crenshaw, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmore and many more.

An American jazz musician, vocalist, pianist, songwriter, educator, and producer, TERI ROIGER lives in New York City and also spends time in New York’s Hudson Valley. Teri has performed throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Europe, and has been a featured artist at the San Miguel Jazz Festival, Panama Jazz Festival, and Bolzano Jazz Festival. The depth of her experiences and love of jazz is apparent when she brings all of her talents to bear in her live performances, the recording studio, and through her moving lyrics and compositions.

MATT KING is a pianist, organist, vocalist, composer, arranger and producer based in the NYC area. His latest recording as a leader, “Monk In Brazil”, features the iconic compositions of jazz legend Thelonious Monk, arranged by King in various Brazilian genres.

New York City bassist JOHN MENEGON started his career playing bass in Montreal. After having worked for several years on the Canadian jazz scene with the great guitarists Sonny Greenwich, Mike Gauthier & Nelson Simons, and saxophonists Steve Grossman & Pat LaBarbara, he went on to hone his skills in NYC in the mid-80s.

Drummer MATT GARRITY has been on the New York City music scene since 1994. He has performed with some of the best in the business, including Grammy winner Vincent Herring, David Williams, Teri Thornton, Peter Bernstein, Gary Versace, Ed Cherry, Ben Monder, Jeremy Pelt, among others. Garrity has been living in the Hudson Valley since 2017 and produces a concert series out of his home/studio called Barnstock.
