Host: The Hop
The NYC-based Jake Richter Quartet returns to Wisconsin for their second national tour! Join us Thursday, May 4th for a night of jazz-rock fusion, with great food and drinks! Boasting nearly a decade of musical comradery, the Jake Richter Quartet has been gaining notoriety in the New York Jazz scene since its members arrived in 2018. Now, they're bringing their organic style and driving grooves back on tour to the Midwest. Their story starts at Indiana University, where Jake Richter, Connor Evans, and Evan Main met at the Jacobs School of Music. Since then, the three of them have performed together at the Next Gen Jazz Festival in Monterey CA, the Jazz Gallery in New York City, and the legendary 55 Bar with luminaries such as Walter Smith III and Marquis Hill. The long standing trio is joined by one of New York's most in demand bassists, Dan Montgomery, who regularly performs with the likes of Ari Hoenig and Remy LeBeouf in addition to leading his own acclaimed groups.
