The Wolverines Jazz Trio
The Wolverines Jazz Trio
The remaining trio of the legendary Twin Cities Wolverines Big Band which started in 1973. The trio can frequently be found swinging with vocalists at hot spots like Hell's Kitchen and Crooners Lounge & Supper Club. "Consisting of drummer Jendeen Forberg, pianist Rick Carlson, and bassist Steve Pikal, the trio develops its set list from audience requests, making each show unpredictable and improvisational."
