Event description

Description

With A Twist is modern music re-imagined — a play on the historical practice of jazz musicians pulling from the popular songbook. Maggie and Jackson Evans explore rock and pop music through a jazz scope featuring songs by artists such as the Beatles, Mötley Crüe, Tom Waits, and Alabama Shakes. Spliced with a few jazz standards and original compositions, this will be a unique and exciting show!

Maggie Evans is a creative powerhouse. Formally trained as a classical pianist, she discovered bass as a teenager in her brother’s punk band. She later added voice studies to the list while pursuing an MFA in painting at Savannah College of Art and Design where she is now an adjunct professor in foundations.

Jackson Evans began playing guitar at the age of twelve. He holds a Bachelor of Music from Utah State University. He has since maintained a private studio, conducted clinics at Universities across the U.S., and is faculty at the Hilton Head Jazz Camp. Jackson is an in-demand band leader, composer, arranger and accompanist. He has toured with his own group and traveled with other artists such as Velvet Caravan and Colin Gilmore. He has performed with jazz luminaries Nicki Parrott, Quentin Baxter, Kevin Bales, and Howard Paul.

Jackson has released three albums, two with Maggie Evans and one under his own name, which was produced by and featured saxophonist Jody Espina.
