We had the pleasure of working with (Jason and the ‘Q’): Jason Weismann, Graydon Peterson, Tanner Taylor and Pete Hennig for the 40th Annual Lamberton Jazz Festival held in Lamberton, Minnesota. Jason was available during the planning process, prompt to reply to my questions and kept Graydon, Tanner and Pete apprised of their duties for the day. The festival day was AMAZING! All four men were very punctual and prepared for the day. Jason, Graydon, Tanner and Pete were easily able to relate to both junior and senior high jazz students. The students thoroughly enjoyed working with the clinicians both in their performances and during their master classes. All four clinicians were able to provide the students with new information and playing techniques. Jason, Graydon, Tanner and Pete performed an evening concert as part of the festival and the concert was SUPERB! They played both original pieces and cover tunes, ballads and up-tempo pieces and vocal and instrumental arrangements. The audience even got to join in! I am looking forward to working with Jason, Graydon, Tanner and Pete for future Lamberton Jazz Festivals and highly recommend them for a festival or clinic in any school!!!
Hope this helps and thanks again for a great festival! I mean every word of the testimonial!
