Music: The Elligers Brothers play jazz Wed., July 15, at 8 PM

Elligers_Brothers_BV_092514_WebThe Elligers Brothers Band returns to the Best Video Performance Space on Wednesday, July 15. The cover charge is $5 and the music starts at 8 PM.

Anchored by a rhythm section of Bill Morrison on upright bass and Lucas Apostoleris on drums, the Elligers Brothers Band features Erik Elligers on tenor sax, Sean Elligers playing trumpet and Kyle Elligers on piano.

The combo plays modern jazz, defined in this case by the post-World War II styles of bebop, hard bop and modal jazz. Their set last year included both originals and their own interpretations of songs by such masters as Charlie Parker, Lee Morgan and Kenny Garrett.
