About the music
Patti Shaffner’s original songs cannot be safely storied in one box labeled ‘folk’ or ‘jazz.’ Rather, she seamlessly glides between genres as she uses whatever musical style needed to best fit her evocative, thought-provoking songs. She paints pictures with her words and melodies. Along with versatile and wildly talented guitarist/bassist Scott Pazera and percussionist David Cowan the trio creates fresh perspectives on standard jazz tunes, more contemporary songs and originals.
You can listen to a sample of the Pattie Shafner Trio here: NPR: When First We Practice
Patti, Scott, & David will perform their music in the first half, and in the second half you can join in for a participatory session with the Trio and the Trybal Revival Circle Singers.
Directions & Parking
From downtown Kalamazoo, follow Michigan Avenue east. Just after the King Highway turnoff get in the right lane and stay right as you pass under the viaduct (you are still on E. Michigan Ave). Straight through light at E. Main, continuing on E. Michigan — we’re in the next block on the left just past the community garden — look for yellow house with grey fence. Unlimited street parking available on E. Michigan Avenue. Use the arbor entrance from E. Michigan to house.
