Jazzschool Studio Band
The Jazzschool Studio Band is made up of some of the best high school jazz musicians in the Bay Area. Led by legendary band leader, composer, and arranger Dave Eshelman, the band sounds mature beyond their young ages. Expect incredible arrangements, fiery soloists, and music both exploratory and traditional. This group came in 2nd place last year at the Monterey Jazz Festival's Next Generation Festival and has a number of students who are in this year's Grammy band, which selects students from throughout the entire country. They are raising money to go on a European tour this summer. If you want to see the future of jazz, this is the place to see it!
