After a thrilling performance last year, Jazz in the Garden is excited to bring back The WirePilots to Colorado Springs just in time for the introduction of their second album. Led by guitarist and composer Dan Rubright, the WirePilots have released their first CD, The Short Way Home in 2017.
One of the top jazz guitarists in St. Louis, Dan has had a varied career as a performer, composer, arranger, bandleader, producer, educator and collaborator. He has performed through the Midwest with his own music. Dan has also worked with leading groups such as the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, the Fox and Muny Orchestras, Opera Theatre of St. Louis and the Erin Bode Group, among others. He has scored music for film, television, radio and the internet.
At Jazz in the Garden, picnics are welcome. Blankets and chairs are encouraged. There are beverages available and, as always, this is a family-friendly musical atmosphere.
