Artist of the day: Jim Morey Band



Jim Morey: Trumpetist, singer, guitarist, collector of hats, member of jazz groups Lounge Cat and the Helios Jazz Orchestra ... and now leader of his own wildly creative band, the Jim Morey Band.

Ragtime, jazz, swing, pop, Southern-flavored Vaudeville ... it's all a big melange to this eccentric but rising group, which is unlike any you're likely to see anytime soon. Along with David Crisler on electric MIDI banjo, Anne Van Atta on upright bass, Billy Carr on drums, Morey's group has has been a popular draw at funky hipster events like ARTpool's TRA'shion Fashion show in July.

The Jim Morey Band will perform Saturday (11/21) at New World Brewery alongside Poetry 'N Lotion and Infinite Groove Orchestra. Tickets are $4.
