Dan Puccio is a saxophonist comfortable in multiple genres, and has performed with several notable artists including the Temptations, the Four Tops, Chris Potter, Dave Holland, Jerry Lewis, and Bernard Purdie. An active proponent of new music, he has commissioned and premiered over twenty new works for the saxophone in various contexts. He has performed in many notable venues throughout the Midwest and New York State including Electronic Music Midwest, the Midwest Composer’s Symposium, the SEAMUS national conference, Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium, and the Ford Detroit International Jazz Festival.

Seen and heard at prestigious venues across Phoenix and Los Angeles, Michael Collins’ style as a pianist is ever-evolving, though you’ll always hear plenty of chops, bebop, and the lyrical sensitivity which personifies Michael Collins. To jazz lovers and musicians around the world, Mike’s style as a composer is unique, imaginative, and worth checking out!

Steve Douglas is passionate about any good music. He trained classically for 12 years, including 4 years at the University of Michigan while in high school and, at age 17, toured Europe with the American Youth Symphony. He also spent two summers at the renowned Interlochen Center for the Arts before furthering his education at Michigan State University.  While still in college he discovered jazz and has since performed at some of the best resorts and jazz clubs in the country.
