New photo gallery: Elijah Balbed Quintet

Written by 

Last night, I escaped the 100 degree heat and ducked into the cool confines of Bohemian Caverns to catch the first gig with Elijah Jamal Balbed as bandleader. Balbed is a great young local musician who I've heard before with the Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra and the Integriti Reeves Quartet so it was a pleasure to catch this great opportunity of his.

The set featured Balbed on saxophone, Kenny Rittenhouse on trumpet, Allyn Johnson on piano, Zach Brown on bass, and Quincy Phillips on drums.

I've posted a new gallery from the evening. Enjoy!
