“Normal People” Performs Live on February 8th

Aaron Staebell’s “Normal People” will perform live on Jazz90.1 on Wednesday February 8 at 7 p.m. NORMAL PEOPLE is a group that has been around since late 2012. The group’s leader Aaron Staebell wanted to play songs that he really liked, but were not necessarily accepted as ‘jazz songs’. The band includes Colin Gordon (sax), Billy Petito (guitar), Chris Xu (guitar), Andrew Links (keyboard), Matt Curlee (keyboard), Dave Kluge (bass) and Aaron Staebell (drums). It will be an evening of songs you’ve heard, but filtered through my mind. It will be fun, sometimes challenging, and always exciting. The Jazz90.1 Live Studio Concert Series features local musicians performing LIVE from the Jazz90.1 studios. Another great reason to support Jazz90.1. For more information, click here.
