About the artists…
Pete Siers, Drummer
Consummate professional, Pete has an international reputation for his “restless curiosity, attention to detail, and mastery of many different styles,” according to Mike Stratton, host of the FM 89.7 radio show, “The Vinyl Side of Midnight.”  Siers has played with jazz luminaries such as Russell Malone, Mulgrew Miller, Marian McPartland, Lee Konitz, Benny Golson, James Moody, Kenny Werner, David “Fathead” Newman, Eddie Daniels, Frank Morgan, Scott Hamilton, Bob Wilber, and Barry Harris.  In addition to his expansive performance career, Siers has played on over 50 recordingsIn addition to his performance and recording career, Pete has taught percussion and jazz drumming for over 25 years.  He teaches privately as well as having taught at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor School for Performing Arts, Emory University, Purdue University and Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp.  He was also an artist-in-residence at Interlochen School of the Arts.
Tad Weed, piano
Musically, pianist Tad Weed has a rich and diverse vocabulary. His extensive performance experience led to his world tour as conductor and accompanist with vocalists Carmen McRae, Anita O’Day, Paul Anka and Jack Jones. Tad has also been a featured performer and sideman with Charles Lloyd, Al Cohen, Kenny Burrell, Woody Herman, and others.
Dave Bennett
You will believe that Benny is blowing that horn. Dave has been playing clarinet since age 10. By 14, he was traveling around the US and the Caribbean with Dixieland bands. He has won many awards and created arrangements of Goodman jazz classics. At this early age, his resume is almost three pages long. You will love it! Many are convinced that 24-year old Bennett is the reincarnation of Benny Goodman!
