B-Side Social w/ Ryan Connors
The Nashville Jazz Workshop continues the new B-Side Social series, Thursday, February 22 at 7pm. We'll push back the tables for this fun, informal gathering featuring pianist Ryan Connors.
Ryan Connors is a pianist, producer and arranger based out of Nashville, Tennessee, best known as the leader of the jazz/funk/R&B touring group Dynamo. Ryan also co-founded a production company and has produced various musical projects and collaborated with notable artists. His momentum into the heart of Nashvilles music scene is due to his passion for seeking and creating a musical community locally while working to expand this reach and make connections to musicians throughout the country.
Ryan's band Dynamo consistently tours the country, gaining acclaim especially in the Northeast. They have won 2 Nashville Industry Music Awards and have recorded three albums, Live at Ocean Way, Find Your Way, and Celina, all organized and produced by Ryan.
For this B-Side performance Ryan will present both an acoustic and an electric set, joined by these great musicians:

Patrick Atwater - Bass
Ross McReynolds - Drums
Set 2 - (Electric)
