Brett_Bottomley_bw_WebJazz musician Brett Bottomley returns to the Best Video Performance Space on Wednesday, Feb. 11. The cover is $5 and the music starts at 8 PM.

Brett Bottomley is a local jazz and rock Chapman Stickist From North Haven. He has released his first solo stick CD “Journeys” this past year, and gigs extensively throughout the Northeast as a soloist and with his band Toy Masheen.

Brett plays jazz “guitar and bass” parts simultaneously  on his instrument, creating a unique listening experience. Mark Macksoud will be joining on drums and percussion.

The Stick comes from the guitar and bass, but its playing method shares roots with keyboards and drums as well, placing all of these musical voices in the hands of one musician.
