Austin Traditional Jazz Society presents Ron Fink and the Rowdies
Favoring the professional-level written arrangements, Ron Fink and the Rowdies have the classical training to read these intricate charts, and the innate jazz sense to make them swing. It’s a great combination and one that is difficult to bring off. The Rowdies feature Bob Krenkel on reeds, Brian Standridge on trumpet, and Gene LeBeaux on trombone. Banjoist Scott Whitfield is nationally-known, and bassist Matt Tolentino is a multi-instrument talent. Kent Ellingson is a fine pianist, and Ron Fink holds the group together on drums.
