Quintet: North Street Cabaret with Frank McKearn IV
May 11 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm CDT
Feestet is accompanied by Frank McKearn on May 11th for a special blend of arranged jazz classics, collaborations and original music.
Former trumpet player Frank McKearn IV has transferred his talents over to a new sound: the Electronic Valve Instrument.
The EVI, a predecessor to the modern EWI, was designed by Nyle Steiner and produced by the Italian instrument maker Crumar. This simple analog synthesizer is controlled by the breath, and functions as any other horn would in an ensemble.
Frank, a native of Beloit, WI, made his foundation playing with Darren Sterud, Tony Barba, Fareed Haque, John Christensen, and many other Madison greats, and is excited to return to Madison with the Feestet, bringing the sound of the EVI with him.
