Stay Surprising Album Release Show at The Side Door - where the album was recorded live!
Friday, April 27th, 2018

Side Door Jazz Club
85 Lyme St, Old Lyme, CT 06371
Mike Casey - Saxophones
Matt Dwonszyk - Bass
Corey Garcia - Drums

Hartt School alumni & CTNow Readers Poll winner of "Best Jazz", The Mike Casey Trio features Mike on saxophones, Matt Dwonszyk on acoustic bass, and Corey Garcia on drums – three of the brightest young rising stars in jazz. Since graduating from Hartt, this trio has broken through to an international audience since releasing their now critically acclaimed debut The Sound of Surprise: Live at The Side Door.

The absence of guitar or piano, which is typically found in a jazz group, gives the band a very distinctive sound: earthy and accessible, yet mature, refined, exciting, upbeat – and full of surprises. Mike’s recent self-released debut “The Sound of Surprise”, recorded live at the Side Door has surpassed 500,000 streams worldwide since its February 2017 release – unheard for a jazz debut without record label backing. Performing modern original music and creative re-imaginations of jazz classics like Nat King Coles' Unforgettable and pop songs like The Beatles' Norwegian Wood, Queen's We Are The Champions with power, passion, and purpose, the Mike Casey Trio appeals to both jazz aficionados and casual music fans.

Recently named one of Connecticut Magazine's "40 Under 40" for 2018 and featured by Spotify as the cover image for its official ‘State of Jazz’ playlist with 170,000 subscribers after jazz icons Brian Blade and before Dr. Lonnie Smith & Chick Corea, Casey and his trio are poised to claim their stake as a household name in jazz and beyond. Come catch this rapidly rising band on a rare CT return show as they celebrate the release of their 2nd album Stay Surprising: Live at The Side Door!
