Event description

Description

Havilah Bruders has been singing for her entire life. With the vital foundations of a large musical family that sang together for fun and in church ministry, music naturally became Havilah’s focus. She began pursuing her career by studying music and voice, and graduated from William Jewell College. As a soulful, affecting vocalist with incredible range and versatility, Havilah has become one of Kansas City’s most in-demand performers. She has an ability to perform jazz, blues, rock-n-roll, soul, gospel, classical, folk, bluegrass, classic country, world and choral music like each is her sole focus. This places her on many stages around town — in venues, hotels, churches, festivals, private parties & ceremonies. While Havilah can sing just about any genre, she particularly loves singing jazz because of the freedom of expression in improvisation. You can also find Havilah singing at Christmas tree lightings and ceremonies with the professional caroling quartet she founded with her sister and 2 cousin brothers called the “Classic Christmas Carolers”. Havilah and her husband, Kristopher, front the band “Cadillac Flambé” together. They have two children (referenced in track #10 of her new album) who share in their love for music and who occasionally get on stage with them, especially at "Here's to the Roots!" a weekly showcase at Ollie's Local that Havilah and her husband host where they welcome young or new performers to play during their open mic, as well as professional or seasoned artists, to encourage a rich & supportive music community. Havilah and her husband, Kristopher, front the band Cadillac Flambe together. They also promote musical growth by hosting “Here’s To The Roots!”, a weekly showcase at Ollie’s Local that provides hometown audiences with live entertainment from an emerging local musician, and a welcoming place for new and seasoned songwriters to showcase their ideas.

Wilder, Roger (Marshall), pianist and composer; b. Rochester, NY, 2 November 1963. He became interested in music through his father’s (Donald Wilder, b. 1932), mother’s (Alison Herriott Wilder, b. 1935), and sister’s (Laura, b. 1958) piano playing and brother’s (Chris, b. 1960) drumming. Wilder started piano lessons at age 8 and trombone lessons at age 9. Through the influence of drum teacher Vinnie Ruggiero, brother Chris became interested in jazz and started drumming professionally as a teenager. Roger consequently began studying jazz through undergraduate camps at the Eastman School of Music and privately from pianist Barry Kiener. He entered the University of Miami in 1982 as a trombonist and after switching his principal instrument to piano, was graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Music Engineering Technology in 1986.
Wilder remained in Miami, where he met and married Simone Briand. He worked as a pianist there with local musicians including John Bailey, Gary Campbell, Alice Day, Rich Franks, Tom Garling, Alan Harris, Jesse Jones, Dennis Marks, Bill Peeples, Barry Ries, Jon Secada, and Don Wilner, and recorded with Phil Flanigan and Duffy Jackson. Wilder also taught jazz piano at Miami – Dade community College for 4 years.
From 1995 – 2000, Simone and Roger Wilder lived in Ossining, NY and added two daughters to the family: Lilah (1997), and Annabelle (1999). He worked there with Howie Lawrence, Carmen Leggio, Rob Scheps, Walter Urban, Langston Wertz, Gary Wofsey, and recorded with Glenda Davenport, Jon Doty, and Chuck Zeuren.
In 2000, the Wilder family moved to the Kansas City area, where Wilder has worked with the Boulevard Big Band, Colleen Cassidy, Angela Hagenbach, Sons of Brasil, and the Westport Art Ensemble, among others.
