From the nostalgic notes of Georgia to the laconic sounds of Summertime, the lifeblood of New Orleans jazz has found a revival in Orange County. Alex Bowers has successfully broken free of his early training, providing boogie-woogie and blues without a shred of classical syncopation. Playing regular gigs at the Station, and often found practicing at the Cave on Franklin Street in the afternoons, Bowers is known around town as Carrboro's premier blues and jazz pianist.
Currently appearing as a trio with the spectacular Dan Hall and F.J. Ventre, it's always a surprise when you walk into the Station at 7:30 on a Friday night. A non-existant practice schedule makes every show a true musical odyssey, and no two shows sound the same. With influences ranging from North Carolina's own Thelonious Monk to Willie Nelson and Fats Waller, you won't be disappointed!
