Since we started this
network, a number of our members and participants have moved out of the Central Jersey area.
Here's where they are now:
Alan Ens: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Our house guitarist from our the 2nd year in existance during its
Red Tower III epoch, has just graduated from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA where he was a jazz
and guitar major. Alan lives close to Center City, in the artists' district and is playing his original compositions
with his band, The Tongue Schulptors. Alan is also a member of a jazz group called, Whitmer & Whitmer,
again, playing original compositions of Post-Bop jazz. Finally, he's also in the process of forming his own
jazz combo, Tiny Drama, consisting of trumpet, guitar, banjo and trombone.
Alan is close enough to NJ that we still get to hear him on our bandstand from time to time.
Andrew Lohse: New Hampshire / Vermont
Andrew was a valued member of the Somerset
Jazz Consortium from 2007 - 2008, being a very reliable and responsible 'go-to' man for gigs and jam sessions. Towards
the end of his time as a regular, he also started drumming in a jazz setting. During his time in NJ, he was also the drummer for the Rock ensemble 'The Horizontals.'
Andrew attended Dartmouth in Hanover, NH,
and has now shifted his focus to honing his already formidable writing skills to become the next F. Scott
Fitzgerald of the up-and-coming generation.
Evan Montgomery: Wisconsin(?)
