"Momentum" is defined as "the force that keeps an object moving or an event developing after a start has been made." The band Momentum is a force which will definitely keep your event moving.
Momentum is a versatile jazz focused group that well satisfies a variety of music needs. The antics of band leader, Mikel, as he goes out into the crowd playing sax, which is such a contrast to his sweet flute playing, the joy of Gregg’s enthusiastic piano interpretations, Sylvia’s solid bass support, and Mark’s skilled finesse on the drums, all add up to Momentum’s fun and satisfying musical experience.
A typical night would open with our interpretations of beloved standards, including any of the following: All of You, But Beautiful, Ceora, Corcovado, Daahoud, Dear Old Stockholm, Harlem Nocturne, I Hear a Rhapsody, It Could Happen to You, Killer Joe, Nefertiti, Round Midnight, There Will Never Be Another You, Skylark, or Wave. Then, when it is time to relax and get funky, Momentum might typically play anything from In Memory of Elizabeth Reed, Opus de Funk, or Red Clay to Cold Duck Time, or Chameleon. The night may also include several beautiful and well crafted originals, such as Mikel’s Day Sail, or Gregg’s While the Master Slept.
