Wynton Marsalis has been described as the most outstanding jazz musician and trumpeter of his generation, as one of the world’s top classical trumpeters, as a big band leader in the tradition of Duke Ellington, a brilliant composer, a devoted advocate for the Arts and a tireless and inspiring educator. He carries these distinctions well. His life is a portrait of discipline, dedication, sacrifice, and creative accomplishment.
Ryan Denton (vocals), Joe Brand (guitar), Pawel Banach (drums), and a cat named Wojtek (who just joined on bass) are Fox Gang. There will be others soon. Since forming in 2005 in Krakow, Poland, Fox Gang have called many cities their home: Krakow, Edinburgh and now Glasgow, Scotland. But these fine gents bring with them some of the most interesting tunes wherever they go. Their unique mixture of punk attitude, rock and indie music, plus their ultra-cool stage presence has led to a huge number of followers.
