    High Energy Jazz Band
    The Phoenician Four Jazztet was created for a last minute show under the name “The Last Minute Trio” with only three members: Joshua Enns (drums), Tony Salce (saxophone), and Scott Harris (bass). After playing the show, we collectively decided that we enjoyed it so much that we would continue playing jazz with each other as a trio.

    We soon decided to fill out our sound and brought in a fourth member, Kristen Turner to play cello. We initially thought the cello would be an experimental instrument for the jazz band, but soon after decided to have Kristen play guitar and piano, which better fit the genre. The Phoenician Four was born. We continue to learn new jazz standards as well as writing and arranging our own material.

    LANE CHANGEDistrict Stage, 7-10pm

    Rock and Soul
    LANE CHANGE began in 2013 when four eclectic musicians came together for the one thing they had in common at the time, their love for music and performing. Although their musical tastes were as diverse as their backgrounds, they soon found that their differences would help them focus their sound on a sub-genre of music, ROCK and SOUL.

    LANE CHANGE is a throwback power trio combining tasteful guitar riffs, walking bass lines, and driving rhythms with straightforward lyrics and soulfully delivered complex harmonies, resulting in a fresh yet classic alternative to today’s often overproduced music.

    Their live show is an engaging, high energy, concert-like experience, filled with rock and soul tunes that will have audiences dancing, singing, and remembering the “event” that is a LANE CHANGE performance!
