just added! Nathan Koci – accordion (

Sam Kulik – trombone (
Aaron Moore – percussion or related (
Jessica Ackerley – guitar (
Marcus Cummins – saxophone
Ian Douglas-Moore – guitar (

Sam Kulik, from Massachusetts, plays trombone and other instruments with a huge variety of musicians, including Talibam! and David First’s Western Enisphere ensemble.

Aaron Moore is an Englishman who founded Volcano the Bear and now lives in Brooklyn, playing with Gospel of Mars and Alan Courtis, among others. Primarily a drummer he generally considers any instrument or object playable in one way or another.

Jessica Ackerley is a unique guitarist, composer and band leader active on the Canadian and U.S. rock and jazz scene. She continuously tries to expand her musical horizons with various projects like ESSi, her solo guitar compositions and her improvisation trio.

British saxophonist Marcus Cummins has been associated with the UK jazz and improvised music scene since the early 90’s. He has worked extensively as a solo artist, in duos and larger bands but is perhaps best known internationally for his involvement in Trevor Watts’ ‘Celebration Band’.

Nathan Koci plays the accordion and other things for various purposes including folk music, experimental chamber music, and improvised combinations of the two.

Ian Douglas-Moore was born in New Jersey but doesn’t remember anything about the place. He also plays guitar.
