The illicit Jazz Workshop Presents: Hoaxer
June 14 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
$10 admission. Doors open 30 minutes before music starts.
Hoaxer focuses on a cohesive group concept, and plays original music from all four members.
Pretty good odds that at least one of these four still-very young musicians will become a fixture on the international jazz scene. The beauty of it is that every member appears capable of it. Catch them now so you can say you did. Charlie Lincoln on bass, Will Kjeer, piano, Peter Goggin on sax, and Edmund Catlin at the drums. – City Pages
Bassist Charlie Lincoln is currently attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston. A South High alum, Charlie was already a busy gigging musician before graduation, playing with the Dakota Combo, Central Standard Time, the Charles Lincoln Group, and subbing with Eric Gravatt’s Source Code. In his senior year, Charlie was selected as one of two winning youth songwriters in the Eric Stokes Songwriting Contest and was on stage for the Young Performers Showcase for the Zeitgeist New Music Cabaret. He performed with the Dave Brattain Trio as well as with Hoaxer during the 2016 Twin Cities Jazz Festival.
Saxophonist Peter Goggin graduated from Mounds View High School and is studying saxophone at the University of Michigan. In addition to Hoaxer, he has performed in other ensembles at Jazz Central and during the Twin Cities Jazz Festival. Peter was a three-year member of the Dakota Combo.
Pianist Will Kjeer performed for two years with the Dakota Combo, attended the post-high school program at Interlochen Arts Academy, and spent a year studying jazz piano at Cal Arts. He is now heading to the jazz program at McGill University in Montreal. Will has led bands around town since his mid-teens and is an original member of Steve Kenny’s Group 47.
A graduate of St Paul Central High School, drummer Edmund Catlin attends McGill University in Montreal. During his summer break, he is curating a biweekly Friday night series at Jazz Central performing entire albums by Thelonious Monk. He’s also been an active member of the PipJazz Youth program.
