Andy Orlin has played guitar since he was 14 years old; more seriously from around 17-23 and then again for about the last 10 years. In between was spent building his careers and raising two daughters. He enjoys a mix of music leaning towards Americana, Chicago Style Blues, and Texas Swing as well as the British blues scene. He was in a performing blues style band from 1976-1980 with Scott Trowbridge called The Cliftones. His current band King Brisket Boys is a continuation of that earlier endeavor. To find out his playing schedule and locations, he can be reached at email@example.com.
Joe Gransden is the soul of live Big Jazz and Big Band. Clint Eastwood discovered his talent and described Joe as “a young man with an old soul and a classic voice.” Kenny G, the saxophone great, says, ” Joe Gransden is one of those rarest musicians that has it all. He is an incredible instrumentalist with the technique of a virtuoso.” Joe performs worldwide and has recorded over seven CDs. Jazz aficionados, musicians, and locals gather to play, listen, and bring live Jazz to life at Joe’s Jazz Jam every Tuesday at Twain’s in Decatur.
The parents of some of Chicago Joe Jones’ students believe his approach to teaching and performing merits a wide audience. They believe Joe possesses a unique set of skills and qualities that make him unusually qualified to work with young musicians who wish to play rock and roll, blues, and jazz. Joe possesses an uncanny ability to connect with young people. Perhaps a level of skill which has come from a lifetime of teaching kids, nevertheless his combination of patience, understanding and just plain “cool” makes him a special person to all of his students.
