The Doug Hawk Proposition is a three-piece ensemble that hails from Easton, PA. Fronted by vocalist, keyboardist and principal composer Doug Hawk, the group presents a unique, cerebral sound, which can be described as at once historically soulful yet progressively hip. Seasoned drummer Rian Carr and Nicholas Krolak, an emerging, young upright bass player make up the rest of the group.
The Mike Lorenz Trio featuring Mike Lorenz, guitarist/composer/bandleader, is an up-and-coming musician centered in the music scene of the Lehigh Valley. He leads the Mike Lorenz Quartet, which features some of the most in-demand musicians in the Philadelphia area. The group merges influences from within the whole scope of the jazz idiom with outside influences of rock, hip-hop and classical music. Mike has led performances in such venues as Smalls Jazz Club in New York City, Chris’ Jazz Cafe, the Tritone and the Sci Fi Philly/Ars Nova Workshop series in Philadelphia, Puck Live in Doylestown and numerous venues in other parts of the Philadelphia region.
“Guitarist Mike Lorenz operates out of the Lehigh Valley and mixes it up regularly in Philly, bringing a focused and fluent vocabulary to music of original construction. Working within the melodically edgy orbit of such role models as Ben Monder and Kurt Rosenwinkel, he can float by on chordal clouds or stun you with quick flashes of linear brilliance, as on a nifty MySpace track called “3 Step.” Lorenz’s quartet comes at the material with a sense of whimsy and seasoned trust. ” David Adler – Philly Weekly
