The Casualites: Bates, Castino, Gastonguay

November 16 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

| $8
JT Bates 188983z

JT Bates is steeped in the diverse and rich music scene in Minneapolis, MN. Growing up playing in his father’s big band alongside his two brothers was the spark that kept him hungry for more music. Along with being very active and sought after in Minneapolis, music has also taken him to many parts of the globe.  He has been seen with the following bands: Fat Kid Wednesdays, Andrew Bird, Alpha Consumer, French cellist Didier Petit, The Pines, Face Candy (featuring Eyedea), Bryan Nichols Quintet, along with countless gigs in the Twin Cities and around the country.

For the last 20 years Chris Castino has written songs for his band The Big Wu, songs conducive to loud guitars, blues hollerin,’ and dancing. The current version of the Big Wu is suited for tunes that are equal parts Meters and Floyd, but Chris’s latest songs are folk songs, in nature. This is his authentic self; dreadnaughts, fiddles, three-part harmonies. It’s built on the timeless joys and lamentations of our precarious worlds.

Kevin Gastonguay has a B.A. in music performance from McNally Smith College of Music.  For the past 8 years he has been very active in the Minneapolis music scene, performing nonstop with his own original groups and as a sideman for many of the top musicians in town. With a hunger to understand harmony and improvisation and a determination to master rhythm and feel, Kevin has become one of the most versatile and busiest keyboardists in the Twin Cities.

Kevin teaches at McNally Smith College of Music, Modern Day Music, and Minnesota Valley Conservatory of Music.
