May 24 • 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm• $12
Copacetic is the collaborative effort of musicians Gus Russell, Scoop McGuire, Jim Reinking, and Laurie Hammond. Touring through the best of the American Songbook while taking a few detours beyond its borders, the band has gathered a collection of songs that also include the diverse works of Thelonius Monk, Duke Ellington, Blossom Dearie, and a few originals.
Building on the solid foundation of Russell’s intuitive and masterful piano playing, McGuire anchors the group with his deft bass skills, while Reinking adds another critical layer of rhythm on drums. Lastly, Hammond brings her vocals to the mix with a voice that has been described as velvet with a little gravel. Combined, they are as their name implies; in excellent order and going very well.
