“Paragon Hang” is predominantly an Open Mic Jazz format. The Wednesday gig is hosted by Seattle jazz musician, Dave Desrochers.
Sax, Flute and Aki EWI. Raised in Dallas, Dave graduated from The University of Texas with a Music Composition Degree. Dave plays piano, flute, clarinet and sax. He has toured the US with a rock band and has performed in almost every genre of music. Dave has formed many bands that have played extensively in Texas and the North West. Says Dave; “We don’t play Jazz to be pretty good, we play to be great. It’s like the ballet. You don’t remember the pretty good dancers… only the great ones”.
Paragon, along with Dave, provide a comfortable atmosphere where musicians gather, mix, mingle, & hone their craft, while we get to watch and listen. Some of Seattle’s finest musicians stop by to sit-in, meet their friends, and form community. Sign up is around 7:30ish. All are welcome.
Wake up. Get up. Tune up. Sign up. Talent wanted.
