Feb. 7 – Galen Bundy Piano Trio at Ferndale Library

FERNDALE, MI  – The Ferndale Library starts its monthly concert series back up on Friday, February 7, with a performance of modern jazz by the Galen Bundy Piano Trio. The First Stop Friday series is made possible with support by the Friends of the Ferndale Library, bringing live local music concerts inside the library, after hours, to kick-off the first weekend of each month. After taking January off, the series starts back up with this top-notch local jazz ensemble, blending influences of Scandanavian Folk, and Romantic-era composers.

Bundy is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and educator based in southern Michigan, and he’ll be joined by Jon Taylor on drums, and Eric Nachtrab on bass. Galen received his undergrad in jazz piano from Bowling Green State University (Ohio) four years ago and has since appeared there as a guest pianist for select concerts. Galen Bundy is constantly working on music, along with other projects like the electro-jazz group Groove Plexus, the “freakout jazz-rock ensemble” Project 206, and an ambient-electronic duo known as Proton Candy.

Jon Taylor, a Detroit-based percussionist, improviser, composer, and educator, is a Founding member of Polyfold, a musical arts collective. He’s also a regular collaborator in Detroit’s creative arts community. Eric Nachtrab began working as a professional bassist in the early 90s while in school at Bowling Green State, where he regularly worked with the late Eddie Abrams at Rusty’s Jazz cafe in Toledo. Nachtrab worked and collaborated on music projects in cities across the country, including having formed the Stochastic Mettle Union Local #35, he then moved his family to Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 2013.

The Ferndale Library regularly coordinates top quality live music programming for its community, as it prioritizes the opportunity to connect library patrons with cutting edge creators from the local arts and music scene. The building closes for regular library business at 6 pm on Fridays, but doors will reopen at 7:30 pm on February 7, with the Galen Bundy Piano Trio’s performance starting promptly at 8 pm.
