Sam Miltich
Sam Miltich
Sam Miltich is a self-taught jazz guitarist born and raised in the woods of northern Minnesota. Sam burst on the scene in his teens as a young lion of gypsy jazz, joining Paul Mehling's Hot Club of San Francisco and touring internationally with the world-renowned Robin Nolan Trio. Sam's fluid and instinctive sound has graced hundreds of stages, from small towns on the Iron Range to New York's Lincoln Center. In addition to fronting his own band, the Clearwater Hot Club, Sam records and performs extensively with Minneapolis-based jazz singers, Connie Evingson and Charmin Michelle; legendary Twin Cities saxophonist Dave Karr; and Dutch swing violin maestro, Tim Kliphuis. In addition to a busy touring schedule, Sam also hosts a weekly Jazz at the VFW night in his home town of Grand Rapids, MN.

Dave Karr
Tenor saxophonist Dave Karr has been a fixture of the Twin Cities' jazz scene since he moved to Minneapolis in the late 1950's.

He has performed with some of the finest local and national jazz instrumentalists and vocalists. In addition to performing, he has composed and arranged music for film, radio, television commercials and various recording projects. Young at heart, the 84-year-old claims, "I have found the fountain of youth in the challenge of jazz improvisation." He is the winner of a McKnight Fellowship for Performance Excellence for the year 2007-2008.
