A Little Taste of Jazz: WAKOS, aka Wise and Kind Old Souls

Thu, 06/28/2012 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Enjoy the jazz sensibility and agility with a “catch the ghost” attitude from the WAKOS.

Enjoy live music under  the Little Jazz Tent every night during the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Fest. On Thursday, June 28 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. enjoy a performance by WAKOS.

Wise and Kind Old Souls are a group of song writers from the Niagara region of North America. The boys in the band seek to conjure with every live performance the songs of love and passion, the seasons, and a peek within the beautiful but chaotic world. Jazz sensibility and agility with a “catch the ghost” attitude are what these cats seek to unravel and lay at your feet. The WAKOS (a fortunate acronym) are Jay Shulz on the bass guitar and backing vocal, Chris Young on electric and acoustic guitars, backing and lead vocal, dulcimer, and djembe, Kevin Crowley on lead vocal, rythym guitar, harmonica, and didgeridoo, and Mike Evangelista on drumkit and percussion.
