The “Mammoth Ensemble” is an 8-piece modern jazz group brought together by Derek Nellis, a local composer and musician in Phoenix.  The members are made up of local musicians Steve McCarvel, Adam Roberts, Nick Menasco, Matthew Vezey and himself on horns, and Shea Marshal, Rob Wagener and Erik Teichmann on rhythm.

Derek has written all original tunes for the band, are tailored to showcase the groups many strengths, ranging from a variety of styles such as latin, funk, avant-garde, jazz, and even arrangements of film and game music.

We’re excited to present Mammoth Ensemble on it’s debut performance at The Nash, and we aim to entertain with the new and exciting music to showcase this new Jazz Octet!
