On Friday, May 29th, Firehouse 12 is pleased to welcome organist Brian Charette and his group the Mighty Grinders featuring guitarist Will Bernard and drummer Eric Kalb as they celebrate the release of their new album "Good Tipper" (Posi-Tone Records).

Charrette has been called "a master of space and time" (Josh Jackson, WGBO NYC) and "reliably burning" (Bill Milkowski, Jazz Times). The New York Times' Nate Chinen wrote "the Hammond B-3 organist Brian Charette weighs the ageless objective of soul-jazz with a trace of restless modernity." He has "just the right proportions of refinement and rambunctiousness" (Chris Barton, LA Times).

Charette is a Grammy-nominated, Hammond-endorsed organist who won the 2014 Downbeat Critics' Poll in the "Rising Star: Organ" category. He was born in Meriden, CT and at an early age performed with jazz luminaries like Lou Donaldson and Houston Person. He has also worked with artists Joni Mitchell, Chaka Khan, Paul Simon, and many more. He divides his time between New York City, and Prague, Czech Republic.
