Event Details:

"This award-winning big band is taking jazz into the future."  - Flurbie

We're thrilled to have Adam Theis perform for the first time at the Stanford Jazz Festival with SJW's Miles Ahead Big Band! The members of the band are among the best young jazz musicians in Northern California. Coming from high schools around the Bay Area, these passionate jazzers meet every week through SJW’s afterschool program to develop their ensemble and improvisation skills, and they put their heart and soul into every performance. It’s no surprise that they’ve won awards at the Monterey Jazz Festival’s Next Generation Jazz Festival and the High School Honors Outstanding Performance award in the Asynchronous Large Jazz Ensemble category in the 44th Annual DownBeat Magazine Student Awards!
