Bio

On Drums: Hailing from Santa Fe, New Mexico, Forest Carter wears his love of jazz and swing like a badge. Following in the footsteps of Max Roach and Elvin Jones, he seeks to bring a John Bonham bombastic edge to the groove by slamming a backbeat fitting for arena rock shows. His love of music not confined to mere performance but to swing dancing as well, Mr. Carter’s beats command the listener to not only hear the groove, but to move to it as well. He has played with the Transcontinental Hip-Hop Collective in the past and currently plays with the Renegade Minstrels.

On Bass: Migrating west after spending two years at the Berklee School of Music in his hometown of Boston, Luke Dennis lost two strings off his original instrument, the guitar, in order to study bass and finish up a music performance degree at Lewis and Clark. Still carrying the love of all that is heavy from when rock and metal first ignited his passion of music in high school, he seizes the low end of the sonic spectrum and nails it to the drum groove laid out like a dance floor. He currently plays slide guitar with the Renegade Minstrels.

On Guitar: Originally trained as a piano player after he displayed an aptitude for music rare in most four year olds, Dave Dernovsek has lead an already long career as a musician, originally applying to Julliard before settling on Columbia to double major in music as well as buisness. A veritable jukebox of radio hit songs, he anoints his savage guitar chops with a pop sensibility to render even the most alien sounding chord voicings and arrested-pulse rhythms tasty to our terrestrial ears. He has played with Tryptonic and currently plays with the MPCP and a 90’s cover band.

On Tenor Saxophone: Having graduated from Lewis and Clark in 2006, Reid Neuman has since built upon his tenor saxophone performance degree by devoting his time to lending his cascading jazz and hypnotic blues lines to various groups. His love of both old and new school jazz and electronic music finds him poised with a Janus stance on top of the music, reaching back to Coltrane’s sheets of sound as well as strafing the laptop symphonies of Bjork. He has played with the Transconinental Hip-Hop Collective and Tryptonic and currently plays with the MPCP.

On Trombone: From Tacoma, Washington and just now finishing his undergraduate degree in music performance on the slide trombone at Lewis and Clark, Jon Ram-Gramenz carries with him a century’s worth of jazz. He bounces with the rootsy funk of New Orleans brass and glides over the smokey blues of classic Ellington-era melodic swing, and yet showing no fear to play the cosmonaut in a void of the free jazz pioneered by Ornette Coleman. He has shared the stage with Outpost and the Transcontinental Hip-Hop Collective and currently also plays with the Renegade Minstrels.
