Honk, Wail, & Moan at Vonn Jazz on Saturday

Columbus jazz band, Honk, Wail, & Moan, will make an appearance at the Vonn Jazz Lounge this Saturday evening starting at 5:30pm. The members of Honk, Wail & Moan are veterans of the Columbus jazz scene having performed a number of high profile gigs throughout their tenure including the Southern Thailand Jazz and Blues Festival, Philadelphia Festival of World Cinema, Rhythm & Food Festival, Columbus Jazz & Rib Festival, Columbus Community Festival, Columbus Greater Columbus Arts Festival and the Cleveland Performance Art Festival to name a few. Influenced by the music of Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Sun Ra, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Henry Threadgill, David Murray, and many others, the Honk Wail & Moaners can seriously swing it.

Here’s what others are saying about the band:

“The most important thing about this is that it swings. I don’t get to hear a lot lately that swings. I hear lots of jazz that skronks and jags from place to place but very little that actually swings in a head-nodding, foot-tapping, enveloping fashion.”The Aquarian Weekly

“Their musicianship is dead serious but there is a refreshing sense of wackiness in their work. This band has a bundle of energy. Option
