Little Gem Saloon says
The Little Gem Saloon's Jazzfest at the Gem presents Mad Skillet. Mad Skillet was born of a late night show in New Orleans during JazzFest 2015. It came out kicking and screaming, laughing and wailing ,laying down a deep New Orleans groove steeped in jazz, blues ,psychedelic rock, and R&B. Band members are leader, keyboardist John Medeski (Medeski Martin & Wood, The Word), Grammy nominated guitarist/bandleader Will Bernard (Medicine Hat, Party Hats), New Orleans native sousaphoneplayer Kirk Joseph (Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Backyard Groove), and drummer Terence Higgins (Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Ani DiFranco) The eclectic, far–reaching backgrounds of Medeski and Bernard alongside this legendary NOLA rhythm section of Higgins & Joseph generated what Medeski calls, “a vast musical universe with limitless potential”. John Medeski is best known for his buoyant, organ–centric approach to jazz as a part of trailblazing trio Medeski Martin & Wood, he also collaborates often with John Zorn and John Scofield and plays in lauded super–groups The Word, Spectrum Road, and Phil & Friends and in 2013 he released a introspective solo piano album on OKeh/Sony Recordscalled, A Different Time.
