Jan Jungden Trio at Maugle Sierra Vineyards with Fred Fagan on bass and Justin Blackburn on drums
The Jan Jungden Trio infuses a carefully chosen jazz repertoire with a sound that is truly their own. Jan's keyboard versatility keeps things interesting whether she is swinging with the band or burning up a solo on piano or organ. She'll surprise you by switching to flute, and, to break up the instrumentals, she'll sing you a standard a la Diana Krall, or an original. Combine this with Fred Fagan's ability to be comfortable whether he is walking through a jazz standard on upright bass, or snappin' and poppin' on electric bass, and Justin Blackburn's expertise in traditional jazz drumming as well as his natural feel for Latin and funk rhythms. This tight yet spontaneous 3 piece ensemble really delivers, making them a perfect choice for nightclubs, restaurants, cocktail or dinner parties, weddngs, concerts, and outdoor events.
Past appearances include: Maugle Sierra Vineyards, Ledyard, Storrs Center, Gelston House, East Haddam, UConn Winterfest, The Governor's Tavern, East Hampton, Foxwoods Resort Casino, Willimantic Streetfest, Keeney Cultural Center, Wethersfield, Patriots Park, Coventry, Tyrone Farm, Pomfret, Amarantes Sea Cliff Restaurant, New Haven, The Inn at Mystic and more. . .
