Loose Gravel is at the Zocalo May 10 starting at 7:00 p.m.
Three horns, an acoustic bass and drums make Loose Gravel.
There are countless Loose Gravel signs along local roadways announcing their arrival.
For these five friends, interaction on the spot during each tune can happen with dynamic that is impossible when they have instruments that play chords. Tunes unfold as the musicians listen to each other and react.
The original idea of Loose Gravel is so see what happens in a band with no guitar or piano where the members interact with variety and spontaneity.
They tried and got excited about the experience; in fact they got attached to it.
They are well into their second year of growing as a group and are delighted for the opportunity to perform for you this Saturday.
Loose Gravel includes Paul Nuez on trombone, Tony Morrison on sax and flute, Jay Havelaar on trumpet, and James Lithgow on upright bass. They are pleased to welcome Roger Baird on drums this time.
Saturday night they will to get together and have fun playing a handful of hand-picked tunes.
