doug wicken & JAZZART
January 31 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Doug Wicken began playing the double bass at the age of 21, studying with Dave Drew, Jack Lander and Ron Carter.
For many years he served as the bassist with The Barry Wills Trio in Kitchener-Waterloo, and has performed with the John Tank Quartet. He is currently a member of The Bernie Carroll Project, and leads groups under his own name. He created JAZZART as an all-encompassing title for multiple jazz projects, from duos to large ensembles.
His jazz performances include Manhattans (Guelph), The Jazz Room (Waterloo), The Registry Theatre (Kitchener) and The Waterloo Uptown Jazz Festival.
Joining him tonight is pianist Ralph Hetke.
