Rob Frayne & DrumSwamp! Jazz and drum-grounded music. All good clean drum fun—this  gigspace gig is a chance to bask in the joy of grooves, drums and rhythm-music!

“Brazilian drumming inspires Rob Frayne’s latest percussive project, DrumSwamp” When Rob Frayne heard a performance by his son Charlie’s Brazilian drumming class in January, “it just blew me away”. And the reason why was his son’s teacher, percussionist Liz Hanson. That inspired the Ottawa cofor Fmposer and saxophonist to start jamming with Hanson, and to create his newest project, DrumSwamp. The quintet, playing “jazz and drum-grounded music”, will have its debut at GigSpace on Saturday. March 2016 Alayne MacGregor

Rob Frayne (tenor sax, b. cl. keys) now is practicing and writing for the Rob Frayne Dreamband and its many dreamy formats. Rob was the leader of Chelsea Bridge and has played with the Angstones. A highlight of each year is the JazzworksCamp near Ottawa.
The Rob Frayne/Jazzworks Megaband (as big as posssible) will play April 17th at the Westboro Legion. Past concerts/recordings include with: the Shuffle Demons, Mary-Margaret O-Hara, Mary Ann Price (Dan Hicks, Kinks), the Cuban Fence Climbers, Gil Evans Orchestra, Time Warp, Claude Ranger, Fred Stone, Kenny Wheeler, Hemispheres, Rodger and the Ramjets and many others.
