Resavoir Record Release Show!
DOORS: 9:00PM | SHOW: 9:30PM | 21+
Resavoir is a diverse collective of instrumentalists – most of whom are Chicago born & raised, some of whom have been playing together since high school, all of whom represent exciting new directions in Chicago’s fertile contemporary jazz & creative music scenes.
The core lineup features Will Miller on trumpet/synths, Irvin Pierce on saxophone, Akenya Seymour on keys/vocals, Lane Beckstrom on bass, Peter Manheim on drums and Jeremy Cunningham on drums.
All highly active players, the band’s compiled resume includes collaborations with Noname, Chance the Rapper, Makaya McCraven, Jeff Parker, Saba, Nick Mazzarella, Mavis Staples and many more.
The group is led by the composing, producing & arranging work of Will Miller, a trumpeter by trade who, thus far, is most known as a member of the band Whitney, or for his brass cameos on tracks by Mac Miller, Lil Wayne, Eryn Allen Kane, Twin Peaks, A$AP Rocky and Xavier Omar.
By night, Yadda Yadda is a groove hunter who chameleons from electropop to jazz to neo-soul. By day, she’s a Chicago native singer/composer/bassist, Ayanna Woods. Woods’ work as a composer and producer has popped up all over the city — in short films, in arrangements for the Chicago Children’s Choir, at Ganz Hall and Pritzker Pavillion and in your friend’s living room. She recently released her first self-produced rap mixtape U Thought under the name The Hi Hatter.
Lake James is the solo project of Cadien Lake James from Twin Peaks.
