Saturday's events start at 11:00am with the Swedish Pancake Jazz Brunch at the Nordic Heritage Museum along with a classic auto show presented by Washington's vintage Volvo/Saab Sports Club. Performing will be David Marriott's Triskadekaband, offering an exciting & eclectic mix of modern big band sounds.
Award-winning musician and educator David Marriott, Jr. is the premier jazz trombonist in the greater Seattle area. His "uncanny and imaginative playing" is a cornerstone of such groups as Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra, Emerald City Jazz Orchestra, Wayne Horvitz's Washington Composers Orchestra (WACO), Zubatto Syndicate, and The Right Wolf, as well as his own groups, Septology, Pop Culture, Triskaidekaband and Marriott Jazz Quintet. Described by one reviewer as a "canny and imaginative player whose solos display an extraordinary sense of architecture and conception", award-winning trombonist David Marriott is a musician for the next generation - equally at home as a performer, composer, arranger, and educator.
Opening for show will be the Cornish Contemporary Big Band under the direction of Tom Varner.
