Kai Anderson and the
Ira Walker Band
Since the group’s early days of acoustic based
Folk and Americana, they have evolved into a
hybrid of energetic, hook-driven Indie Rock and Blue Grass that
still pays tribute to their Folk roots. Having developed a strong and
dedicated local following, KA&P felt the need to expand. The band
has been on several small tours since then, taking them from Arizona
and Texas all the way out to New York and back. They are constantly
looking towards the future, sharing their music with new people, and
planning the next journey.
Ira’s songwriting, combined with his unique vocal
style and musicianship, are central to what the
blues are all about. Nominated in 2008 for a
Grammy as a producer, singer/songwriter Ira
Walker has just released his much awaited Blues CD “Blame Me”.
“Blame Me” runs the gamut of the Blues genre, from Texas and the
Mississippi Delta to Chicago. His musical pedigree has evolved into a
unique style of Blues, Rock, & Soul. This music will touch the soul and
raise your spirits!!
Ira has written and performed with a star studded list of Music Icons,
including Steve Miller, Eddie Money, Carlos Santana, Brian May, &
Tommy Castro. He toured Europe with Keb’ Mo in 2000.

Wiele. Ken founded the Kenosha Jazz Allstars in 2011 to provide
a summer jazz experience for exemplary students. He has served
as the director of the All-Star program since its inception. The Jazz
All-Stars are made up of some of the finest school jazz musicians
and several KUSD alumni, who serve as instructors throughout the
summer.in the Kenosha Unified School District. The band performs
a broad range of big band repertoire including music from jazz
legends like Count Basie, Les Hooper, Matt Harris, Bob Mintzer,
Gordon Goodwin and Wynton Marsalis
Frank Catalano Group

saxman to have performed with Miles Davis,
Randy Brecker, Charles Earland, Elvin Jones,
Stan Getz, Betty Carter, Von Freeman, Tito
Puente, Tony Bennett, Les Claypool and Louis Bellson while still in
high school! This led to his signing to Delmark Records at age 18
and a string of critically acclaimed recordings. Catalano has been
heard by millions of people all over the world thanks in part to 3
Grammy-winning and 11 Grammy-nominated recordings with artists
such as Jennifer Lopez, Destiny’s Child, and John Legend. Frank
Catalano’s new Ropeadope Recording, “God’s Gonna Cut You
Down” debuted at #2 on the iTunes Jazz sales chart and was the

• Texas Roadhouse VIP Lounge $85 each

Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from
playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and
stages all over the world. While committed to upholding the tradition
of brass bands, they have also extended themselves into the realms
of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound. “Rebirth can be
precise whenever it wants to,” says The New York Times, “but it’s
more like a party than a machine. It’s a working model of the New
Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they’re
doing, anyone can cut loose.” In the wake of the sometimesstringent competition among New Orleans brass bands, Rebirth is
the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of
Following the Grammy-winning Rebirth of New Orleans, Rebirth
Brass Band is at it again with Move Your Body, an infectious, grooveladen collection of hip-shakers sure to saturate the dance floor.
