Jeff Karoub with Mike Karoub
Jeff Karoub is a talented rhythm-and-roots acoustic musician known for telling stories about life in Michigan through songs such as “Made by Motown” and “Fall Comes Early.”
He will perform this concert with his older brother, jazz cellist Mike Karoub of The Royal Garden Trio. He began playing cello at age 8. He took up string bass in 7th grade and began playing professional engagements on both instruments shortly thereafter. Mike attended Wayne State University and Eastern Michigan University. He then toured as bassist for Grammy nominated James Dapogny’s Chicago jazz Band, Banu Gibson’s New Orleans Hot Jazz, recording several albums, with appearances at the Smithsonian, the Kennedy Center, Hollywood Bowl and Garrison Keillor’s “A Prarie Home Companion”. He has also has been a guest with the St. Louis and Atlanta Symphonies. On cello, Mike has performed with several Detroit area orchestras and as a soloist, playing jazz arrangements for cello and orchestra with the Livonia Symphony.
Jeff Karoub plays acoustic guitar, mandolin and fiddle, and has performed at Trinigy House Theatre with folk musician Putnam Smith. For Karoub, an Associated Press reporter in Detroit who gets some of his song ideas from the people and places he explores as a journalist, music is another way of telling a story.
