Jason Hanna Jazz Quartet
A native of San Diego, Jason Hanna began teaching himself to play the trumpet at the age of twelve. Growing up in a Mexican-American family that valued music, Jason was exposed to traditional Mexican songs and Jazz standards from a young age. By singing and playing along with this music, Jason developed keen improvisational skills and a strong musical ear. As a teenager he studied with San Diego musicians Charlie Lauer, Roy Anthony Jr. and Gilbert Castellanos.
For The Vine Affair, Jason will be bringing his Jazz Quartet, aka the Bullfighters rhythm section: Charlie Perkes - Bass, Chris Cancelliere - Drums, Alex Ciavarelli - Guitar, Jason Hanna -Trumpet / Vocals.

Yale Strom and Hot Pstromi
Hot Pstromi bandleader and founder Yale Strom was a pioneer among revivalists in conducting extensive field research in Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans among the Jewish and Rom communities. This unique research formed the foundation for Yale Strom & Hot Pstromi. Hot Pstromi’s sound – a fusion of traditional klezmer, new Jewish music, Gypsy, khasidic, world beat and Balkan music noted for long improvisational breaks – is unique and celebrated.
