River Valley Rhythms
River Valley Rhythms is a music and performance-centered initiative aimed at bringing great local music and music history to audiences in southwest Ohio. In our first wave, we are pleased to have featured a number of great Jazz performances, including The Blue Wisp Big Band, Terell Stafford, the Brian Newman Quintet and The 'Nati 6.
From Funk to Folk, Rock to R&B and Choral to Pop, our corner of the buckeye state has a vibrant and creative music scene that is active in so many genres and styles. River Valley Rhythms hopes to spotlight as many of those as we can, one artist, group and genre at a time. Stay tuned for more information as the next wave of RVR is produced.
The musicians in The ‘Nati 6 have recorded and toured with some of the world’s best-known contemporary Jazz artists. This edition of River Valley Rhythms features performances from the Xavier Music Series. The group also sits down with us to reflect on their careers, on the road and in the Queen City. Features Dan Karlsberg, Art Gore, Kim Pensyl, Marc Fields, Jim Anderson and Brent Gallaher.
