About this Event

Born in 1993, Josh was raised in the small town of Delmont, Pennsylvania, about half an hour east of Pittsburgh. At the age of eight, he began playing the saxophone after watching an episode of the television show Reading Rainbow where LeVar Burton interviewed jazz saxophonist Joshua Redman. He continued to study privately in the Pittsburgh area until 2011 when he moved to Cincinnati, Ohio to study jazz at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM). There he was exposed to the music of a much broader field of jazz musicians. A major point of demarcation came when he listened to John Coltrane’s 1964 album Crescent for the first time. Inspired by the lyricism and power of Coltrane’s playing on that record and others like it, Josh became deeply enamored by jazz of the 1960s.

Tom Buckley is a drummer/percussionist from Cincinnati, OH. In addition to playing with the KGB Trio, he has an adventurous duo with Josh Kline, and can be heard with his electronic/experimental group Flocks. He also regularly performs with many other great musicians and groups in the Cincinnati area such as Dan Karlsberg, Eric Lechliter, Brandon Coleman's Trio, Rick VanMatre's Quintet, The Cincy Brass, Brad Myers, Ben Tweedt, Jason Branscum, and many others.

Originally from New Jersey, bassist Peter Gemus has been living in Cincinnati, OH for the last ten years. During that time he has been fortunate to work with and learn from many of the area’s great musicians. Peter is currently involved with several collaborative musical projects and can be heard regularly on Tuesday and Thursday nights at 1215 Wine Bar and Coffee Lab and Friday and Saturday nights at Dee Felice Cafe.

$10 drink minimum charged per person in party if the total for beverages purchased by the party does not meet the minimum.
