This week, we're featuring the Hegg Brothers Band, recorded live at JazzFest, presented by the Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Society, at Yankton Trail Park on July 20th, 2013. Born and raised within an hour of Sioux Falls, the Hegg Brothers have spent many years performing music around the region. Their first appearance at JazzFest was over a decade ago when they were featured with a 9-piece horn band called Spooncat! In recent years, the two brothers, Jeremy and Jonathon, have played primarily as a duo. For this show, the Hegg Brothers expanded their group and combined their own talents with a group of old cohorts, covering all singer/songwriter music of different styles and sophistication. Members of the Hegg Brothers band have performed with Legendary artists such as Smokey Robinson and Maynard Ferguson. The band includes Allison Nash on vocals, Jim Speirs on trumpet, Matt Wallace on tenor sax, Andrew Reinartz on bass, Derek Hengeveld on drums, Christopher Smith on guitar and vocals, Noah Hoehn on harmonica, and Jeremy and Jonathon Hegg on keyboards.
