The holidays are a good time to be a music fan who lives in a town that's harvested a lot of talented musicians. Many of the ones who have moved away come back home for a visit and want to play a show. Bands that live around here and tour a lot might offer local fans a special performance, something often more casual and fun than usual. And the rest of them are working to buy holiday gifts and/or impress their own out-of-town friends by playing a big-time show.
The Dan Karlsberg Group’s show Sunday at the Blue Wisp Jazz Club will have a reunited-and-it-feels-so-good feel as bassist Steve Whipple and drummer Anthony “T” Lee return from New York City, where they both now live and work, to join Karlsberg (pictured) for an 8:30 p.m.
Gallaher and trombonist Marc Fields will be sitting in with the DKG on Sunday.
