The Fresh Rhythm
The Fresh Rhythm is a high-energy collective of jazz musicians dedicated to re-imagining the American tradition of swing dance and jazz music. The band performs as a 12-piece big band, as well as a smaller, 5-piece jazz combo. The big band enjoys a long running engagement Herb Alpert's Vibrato Jazz Club, Disneyland's Saturday Night Swing, The Cicada Club, Joe's Bar and Grill, Clifton's Republic, and was recently featured on Segerstrom Center for the Arts' "Informally Yours" series. They continue to wow the crowds for corporate gigs and private events ranging from AEG's Christmas party to Catholic Charities Annual Events.
The big band's front man is by vocalist Luke Carlsen and is music directed by pianist Michael Seaman. The rest of the band are some of the hottest up-and- coming musicians in the jazz scene.
As of 2019, the 5-piece combo (also known as "Five got Rhythm") is in its 4th year of performing since its creation in 2015 by drummer Matt Pollard and vocalist Luke Carlsen. They can be seen performing weekly on the Queen Mary in Long Beach.
We would like to thank our fans (especially the dancers) for their continued support! Stay Fresh!
