LIVE JAZZ in Greenville is a good thing, y’all, and that’s what KEVIN KORSCHGEN’s “WHEEL SESSIONS” is all about. Next up: The Keith Davis Trio on March 28th!

Mr. Gene talks about the Wheel Sessions:
“Saw one of the best music evenings in many moons and in a stunningly focused audience listening mode at Wheel Sessions in their really comfy performance space called Underground Music (or sometimes at Greenville UU). The irrepressible and amazing Ignacio Berroa lead 4 top Carolina musicians in 2 sets of life changing great Jazz standards. BAM. Get to one of these!”

Drummer Kevin Korschgen has created the “Wheel Sessions” concert series to fill a much-needed void in our Upstate scene. This is a jazz performance series held in front of an intimate listening audience, not a night of background music or something you have to struggle to hear over the din of a noisy, boozy crowd. It’s just great tasty jazz delivered tastefully, and we definitely approve. Here are the next dates in the series!
