THE CHRONICLES are a multifaceted Funk-Fusion group based in Philadelphia, PA led by trombonist Jasyn Brazoban. The band consists of a dynamic 4-piece horn section, and forceful 5-piece rhythm section. THE CHRONICLES made their debut in March of 2020 and have been steadily growing their fan base since. They've had the pleasure of performing for audiences all over the greater Philadelphia region as well as NYC. THE CHRONICLES have had the opportunity to share the stage with outstanding artists such as the great John Swana. You can see them perform in-house or via livestream regularly as part of their yearly residency at the long standing Chris' Jazz Cafe in Philadelphia.
The Hess Brothers consists of music written and performed by Jon, Joey and Ricky Hess, taking the form of varying instances of jazz fusion. With influences ranging from alternative rock groups to jazz ensembles, the group works with a diverse catalog of music within each set. The three brothers often work both together and separately, as each member has multiple other projects performing throughout the Philadelphia area. This group works to capitalize off of their family chemistry to develop an exciting musical environment.
Hiruy Tirfe is a musician/saxophonist from Philadelphia, PA. Tirfe had amazing opportunities to work with artists of all genres of music including The Roots, H.E.R., Solange Knowles, Patti LaBelle, Wyclef Jean, Robin Eubanks, Bilal and many other artists. Upon graduating The University Of The Arts with both his bachelors and masters degrees (2017 & 2018 respectively), Tirfe began working heavily as an educator and professional musician performing at venues such as Radio City Music Hall, Made In America Festival, AfroPunk Festival, NFL Draft, Monterey Jazz Festival, John F. Kennedy Center, NPR Tiny Desk Series, to name a few. When Tirfe isn't on the stage, he is in the studio working with various producers and artists for numerous projects including GRAMMY Nominated Records (Tye Tribbett; All Things New), 2020 Grammy Awards Soundtrack, 2021 Academy Awards/Oscars Soundtrack, Hallmark Film "A Nashville Legacy" and many other projects that you can hear on records as well as on television. Tirfe self-released debut record "10,000 Hours" is set to release later this year.
