Scott Anderson

electric basses, bass clarinet, electronics

Scott is a freelance web developer and DIY musician. After playing clarinet and tenor saxophone in various bands, orchestras, jazz ensembles and pit orchestras throughout high school and college, then pursuing an undergraduate degree in music history with research on John Coltrane’s avant garde jazz style, his professional path veered into technology. Yet he continued making music, playing bass in various rock bands in Minneapolis and Atlanta. From 2003 to 2017 he focused mainly on solo recording projects of original instrumental music in electronic, progressive rock and jazz styles.

Brandon Sisneroz

drums & percussion

When he’s not building stage sets, reconfiguring climbing walls, fabricating percussion instruments, making wine, or pursuing one of his other many and diverse interests, Brandon is behind the kit for 32nd Street Jazz, bringing a polyrhythmic fluidity to the drums that goes well beyond simply keeping time. Brandon grew up in Southern California and toured the country as a musician before settling in Minneapolis in the 2000s.
