The EarRegulars

The EarRegulars feature leader Jon-Erik Kellso on trumpet and Matt Munisteri on guitar and feature guest artists every week. The play swinging, melodic classic jazz, i.e. everything from New Orleans style through the tin pan alley classics, the swing era, and mainstream jazz.

They don't play half hour long solos, although it's not unusual for a song to last 10 minutes or more; they like to take our time and enjoy exploring ensemble improv', a conversational style. They approach traditional jazz in an open-minded, in-the-moment way.

This band often smiles and laughs (yes--even on stage!), and is not ashamed of this.

WHAT THE CRITICS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT…

“It sounds like Cole Porter meets Gene Autry.” — Clyde Haberman, New York Times

“He’s like that Cash kid, but good.” — Jerry Lee Lewis on hearing Jack live

“…a skill at painting perfect vignettes with their songs – some humorous, some heartbreaking – but always drawn from real life.”— Exclaim (Canada)

“If you don’t laugh and cry at the same time as Grace and his gracefully loose band navigate their way through such gems as ‘If You’re Gonna Raise a Drunk’ and ‘Morning Margaritas’, you better check your pulse. You might be disgracefully dead.” — James Reaney, London Free Press (Canada)

“He has been known to praise whiskey and large glasses of beer.” — New York Times

“A bona fide Country Rock Originator.” Kilkenny Advertiser (Ireland)

“One of the city’s most skilled and personable stars.” — Time Out NY
