I just wanted to let you know about several upcoming performances I have this month.

The first is Thursday, August 11 from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Bean Good Cafe in St. Louis Park. I will be playing with my trio (Ted Olsen, bass; Matt Buckner, drums).

The next one is Saturday, August 13 at 7 pm at Studio Z in St. Paul. I will be playing with my quintet (Caleb McMahon, trumpet; Brad Allen, saxophone; Jordan Jenkins, bass; Matt Buckner, drums). This event features three sets of music; we are playing the first set. The second set is by The Famous Last Words (Joe Strachan, piano; Noah Ophoven-Baldwin, trumpet), and the third is The Famous Last Words featuring Cory Grindberg (bass) and Miguel Hurtado (drums). $5 cover at the door; there will be snacks.

After we’re finished at Studio Z, I head over to the Gingko Coffehouse in St. Paul. I will be playing with my trio (Ted Olsen, bass; Matt Buckner, drums) starting at 9 pm.

On Saturday, August 20 at 12 pm I will be playing with the Dakota Combo at the Burnsville Art and All That Jazz festival.

Also, in addition to my website (http://quentintschofen.com), I have launched a Bandcamp page (http://quentintschofen.bancamp.com) with recordings of various performances that you can download. I will be adding more music in the near future, so check back often!
