Wednesday night jazz at Elliott Street Pub! Always Fun, Always Free! "Bryan Lopes is on the 'A List' for Atlanta's top tenor saxophonist." - Atlanta Journal-Constitution. And in this VERY, VERY SPECIAL Wednesday night music show, The Bryan Lopes Trio including the incredible Jeff Sipe (founding member of Aquarium Rescue Unit with the late great Col. Bruce Hampton) and the unmatched Neal Fountain of Megaphone Man on bass - with Bryan Lopes on tenor saxophone - will blow you away!  {WE ARE BLOWN AWAY TO HAVE THEM :-))

"If you haven't heard of saxophonist Bryan Lopes, it's about time you did." After spending time in New York, Bryan Lopes moved to the Atlanta area and quickly became a pivotal contributor to a collective of improvisers drawing from roots steeped in jazz, bluegrass, southern jam band and funk.  Regular jam sessions, coordinated by drummer Jeff Sipe, included Count M'Butu on percussion, Jimmy Herring and Randy Honea on guitars, Ricky Keller and Neal Fountain on bass and Mr. Lopes on sax. These sessions led to collaborations including The Apartment Project, Megaphone Man and the latest incarnation The Bryan Lopes Trio including Jeff Sipe on drums and Neal Fountain on bass.  Mr. Lopes has worked with Chick Corea, Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Natalie Cole, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Stone Temple Pilots, Don Henley and recorded for CNN, TBS, and TNT among others.
