Black Market Trust is a five member jazz band based in Los Angeles. Since the 2012 release of their all instrumental debut album, “The Black Market Trust,” a milestone in the genre of gypsy jazz, the band has gone on to record two more albums, maintain a busy touring schedule and have their music featured on TV shows like the ABC television series “Happy Endings” and the Hulu original program “Casual”. The band features the Django Reinhardt inspired gypsy sound of acoustic instruments and infuses classics from the Great American Songbook with intricate vocal harmonies inspired by The Beach Boys and other artists influential to the group. Their sophomore album “II” featured a Top Ten hit on the Adult Contemporary charts, a signature version of “Route 66”. The members of The Black Market Trust imbue their concerts with an obvious love of music and contagious, upbeat, toe tapping joy.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”213536″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]The performance on January 28, 2019 at Rock Springs High School and will feature Ontario native Suzanne O. Davis’s show “Tapestry Live”, recreating the sound and vibe of a 1970’s Carole King concert experience following her legendary album, Tapestry. This show has been receiving incredible attention and standing ovations, playing to sold out audiences in Canada and the US. Not only does Suzanne channel the characteristics of Carole at the piano, but her comfortable stage presentation really endears her to the audience. Impeccable attention to detail is taken in presenting a respectful and accurate musical presentation of piano and vocals.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”213537″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]The final concert of the season will showcase 7th Ave, a group of vocalists brought together in 2016 by Chris Rupp, the founder of Home Free and the “Chris Rupp Project”. 7th Ave presents a new sound that combines elements of pop, swing, rockabilly, country and much more. The band is aiming to reinvent and uproot the standard definitions of all of those genres and forge a new identity in the music world.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][vc_column_text]Members of the Association also enjoy reciprocity with the Cheyenne and Craig, Colorado Concert Associations. Because of this, SCCA members are able to attend the concerts presented by these Associations, on a space-available basis, as part of their local membership fee, thus tripling the number of performances available. Performances featured by the Cheyenne Concert Association this season are BrassFire featuring Jens Lindemann, musical group Sons of Serendip, pianist Charlie Albright and country band the Doo-Wah Riders. The Craig, Colorado, Concert Association will present American Troubadour Jeff Dayton, violin/cello duo The OK Factor, Bob Halliigan’ tribute show “Paul The Beatle” and the Doo- Wah Riders. Concert information is available on request.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The Sweetwater County Concert Association sponsors “BITEnight”, their annual fundraiser to help generate funds and allow them to keep the membership fees low.
