Tim and Mike are also in the house band at Dell'arte.They will be joining forces with Natural Horn Killers,three of Humboldt's hottest horn players.

The Next Wave

This ensemble has been playing together for a year now and the music is taking on a life of its own. With Bill on vocals and trumpet, Michael Curran on drums, Lee Phillips on electric and acoustic bass, and Jack Thomas on piano they explore emerging and established Be Bop, and Progressive classics. Bill has added original vocals on many tunes and pays homage to Jazz legend Eddie Jefferson’s wonderful Vocalese lyrics on seminal instrumental solos. It is their mission and their joy to share this unusual eclectic mix of great jazz music.
