On Friday, October 24th, Firehouse 12 is pleased to welcome The Wee Trio featuring vibraphonist James Westfall, bassist Dan Loomis, and drummer Jared Schonig. The band's recently released live album Live at the Bistro (Bionic Records) was well-received by critics and a strong representation of their live shows.

The Wee Trio is a one of the "highly creative groups pushing jazz and improvised music in exciting and innovative directions" (WICN Jazz for New England). The trio "works as a complete team, and uses a repertoire that ranges from Tin Pan Alley to standards to modern rock, and make it all work like a seamless tapestry" (JazzWeekly). The Wee Trio's Live at the Bistro "should be considered a ringing success. [It] makes me want to see them in person" (DownBeat).

The Wee Trio formed in Brooklyn, NYC from 2005-2007. The group has four albums out on the Bionic Records imprint. Jared Schonig has performed with artists such as Wynton Marsalis and Dave Liebman. Dan Loomis performs with his own quartet and in T.S. Monk's Sextet. James Westfall has performed with Nicholas Payton amongst others. Jared and Dan still live in NYC while James currently lives and teaches in New Orleans, LA.
