July’s installment of the Wednesday residency program at Dick’s Den will see a wide array of modern jazz styles come to the stage courtesy of host Danny Bauer (photo by Rickie McCanna). The keyboardist and Capital grad has been an integral part of the local jazz scene in recent years, leading groups including Safety Squad and holding down the piano chair for the Pete Mills Quartet at the Park Street Tavern Tuesday Jazz Jam. The four excellent shows Bauer has booked for his residency are a bit bittersweet – these dates are some of the last chances to see him play original music in Columbus for the foreseeable future as he leaves for the graduate program at the University of North Texas in mid-August. So seize the opportunity to see a variety of his new and old bands, all featuring from some of the greatest young talent in the area, while you can! Each week’s show will start around 9:30pm and cover is $4. Bauer was kind enough to give us details on each week’s show – keep reading to learn more: Read More →
