Loose Gravel is excited to welcome esteemed guest Jack Reynolds on baritone saxophone and flute.

We’ve been working on our project with no chording instruments and we’re back at the Zocalo Café this Saturday.

Three horns and a bass form Loose Gravel. The original idea of Loose Gravel is so see what happens in a band with no guitar or piano.  We tried and got excited about the experience.

This time, Loose Gravel features Jack Reynolds on baritone saxophone and flute, Paul Nuez on trombone, Tony Morrison on saxophones and James Lithgow on upright bass.

Have you noticed the countless Loose Gravel signs along local roadways announcing our arrival? They usually do not tell when and where to find us.

Look for us at the Zocalo Café on Nov. 9. On Saturday night at 7 p.m., we will to get together and have fun playing a handful of our favourite tunes. The vibe, refreshments and meals are consistently first-rate at the Zocalo while we musicians have a wonderful time playing.
