Hi, I am a trumpet player, band leader of Rich Wetzel's Groovin Higher Orchestra, and a jazz lover, fan living in Tacoma, WA but playing and listening to jazz all over, including Olympia. More info about me and my band at www.richwetzel.com
Because of the artistic integrity and history of it locally as well as nationally and internationally and the incredible music it presents to us all. The northwest and Olympia have incredible jazz musicians and a wonderful history and future too!
"A 15 piece high intensity jazz orchestra playing music from Stan Kenton, Buddy Rich, Woody Herman, Maynard Ferguson, Dean Martin to big band treatments of Chuck Berry and James Brown!"
A beacon of jazz bringing musicians and fans together.
Rich welcome to my Seattle Jazz Meetup Group with other artists also in my group. I would like to support your music so will look forward to hearing more details re: your Tacoma Jazz & Blues Festival...and other concerts. Come join us when free. We have some great members sharing great sounds.
