Jazz pianist Ben Geyer, a Nashua native, returns to our stage July 14


Ben Geyer Trio

Saturday, July 14 @ 8 pm

Tickets at the door:  $5 to $15 (sliding scale)

Ben GeyerThe piano trio is a classic format: practically every jazz pianist throughout history has explored this compact setup which boils the jazz ensemble down to its essence. Nashua pianist Ben Geyer has appeared at Studio 99 with his larger group, The Ben Geyer Sextet, as well as in duo with vocalist/pianist Matthew Bryan Feld. But this is Ben’s first serious foray into the piano trio realm. He will be joined by drummer Eric Von Oeyen and bassist Rob Gerry, musicians from the New Hampshire seacoast.

Expect to hear popular music chosen from the American Songbook and more recent styles. Ben will also play original modern jazz compositions, some of which will be premiered at this performance. At times, you’ll tap your foot to the beat or sit back and soak in the soundscape—or sometimes, both. The most exciting part, though, is that you’ll probably hear improvised sounds so fresh that even the musicians couldn’t have anticipated them.
