The Ryan Blotnick Band performs two sets of music.
Ryan Blotnick – guitar
Danny Fisher-Lochhead – alto sax, electric cello, keyboards
Treyan Nelson – drums, keyboards, piano
The first will be the improvising duo Fishblot, celebrating the completion of their album Small Talk for the Buenos Aires-based ears&eyes Records. The duo touches on jazz, chamber music, and the unknown as they navigate uncharted waters.
The second set is a trio featuring the members of Fishblot with the addition of 16-year-old wunderkind Treyan Nelson. This new group incorporates keyboards, electronics and found percussion into a bass-less jazz trio setting.
