News and Events
I’m thrilled to be playing this Saturday, February 17th, at the Crocodile Cafe with Eduardo Mendonca and Show Brazil! Eduardo and Co. have been playing this show for about 20 years now, so it’s pretty well dialed in. If you’re looking for a party for Carnival, this is the place to be. Tickets are on sale now, pre-ordering is recommended!
I have the privilege of performing with saxophonist Tim Warfield next month, as part of the Bellevue College Jazz Festival. Tim is an outstanding musician from New York by way of Pennsylvania. His playing gained national recognition when, in the ’90s, he joined Christian McBride’s ensemble, and then trumpeter Nicholas Payton’s. If you want to check out some of his music before he’s in town, he has almost a dozen albums on the Criss Cross label.
There are ample opportunities to hear Warfield play over the first weekend in February, but the most exciting will be a quartet date at Tula’s on Friday, February 2. He’ll be joined by Greg Feingold on bass, Matt Jorgensen on drums, and yours truly on piano. Check it out!
Happy New Year! In 2018 and beyond, I plan on making semi-regular posts to this website so you know what’s going on. Here’s the latest.
-I am featured on Phil Parisot’s latest album, “Creekside”, which was released recently on OA2 records. Buy it here!
-I’ll be accompanying the fantastic saxophonist Tim Warfield at the Bellevue College Jazz Festival February 1-3.
-I’ll be in Moscow, ID at the end of the February to work at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival.
-The Grunge Trio returns to Tula’s on March 1st.

I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be presenting a solo piano recital at Seattle Pacific University next month. I’ll be celebrating the great jazz composers, performing works by Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Ornette Coleman, and many others. I’m also playing a few more modern songs by Paul Simon, and David Byrne.
The venue is E.E. Bach Theater on the campus of Seattle Pacific University.
The concert is kid-friendly, and free. More details are on the calendar page. Come on out if you’re in the area!
It’s been a while, but the grunge trio is back, playing at Boxley’s on November 14th. Whet your appetite with this video from our last gig!
I recently edited some performances of the Grunge Trio from Jazz in the Valley, 2013. You can check out all the videos at the Dan Kramlich YouTube channel, but here’s a preview, Pearl Jam’s Alive.
From July 26-28, I’ll be in Ellensburg for the 2013 Jazz in the Valley Festival. There is live music at more than a dozen venues throughout the city. Friday night the Dan Kramlich Grunge Trio is performing at the Clymer Gallery, and Saturday night I’m performing with Jake Bergevin. I’ll also be playing Sunday afternoon with the festival’s house big band. If you’re in the area for the weekend, stop by!
I’m excited to announce that I’ll be playing several gigs in July with Emily Asher’s Garden Party, playing the music of Hoagy Carmichael. Emily is a fantastic trombone player, originally from Seattle, who now lives and performs in New York. We played together quite a bit a couple of decades ago, and I’m excited to have the chance to make music with Emily again. Details for all of the show are on the calendar page!
The Dan Kramlich Grunge Trio has a couple of exciting shows coming up in the new year. We’re starting the year with a Seattle area mini-tour, with shows at three of our favorite venues, Boxley’s in North Bend, the CMA Gallery in Wallingford, and Löcol in West Seattle. The CMA gallery show is a rare opportunity to hear the band in an intimate concert venue. Advance tickets for that show are available at Brown Paper Tickets.
Also, we’re excited to announce that the Dan Kramlich Grunge Trio has been accepted to perform at Jazz in the Valley in Ellensburg this summer. Jazz in the Valley is a festival that includes over a dozen venues, and a mainstage in the center of town. The Grunge Trio will be performing at the Clymer Gallery on the Friday night of the festival.
You can keep informed about what’s happening with the Grunge Trio and my other projects here, or on the band’s facebook page. Happy New Year!
