RIDESHARE is one of the West Coast’s premier improvisational jazz duos, playing Latin, Standard and Original Jazz on Keyboards, Flute, and Vibes.
RIDESHARE was named when two East Coast musicians looking to rebrand their club-date duo as a serious jazz band “took a ride” to California and spotted the perfect name for a jazz group on a road sign.
Dan (piano, organ, vibes, melodica, accordion) leads this multi- instrumental duo from keyboards featuring piano, bass and Hammond organ sounds.
Audrey (soprano/alto flute, piano) starts off on flute, and moves seamlessly to keyboards when Dan takes a ride on vibes.
Jazz, blues and Latin rhythms, from an Alesis SR-18 drum machine or a live Percussionist, complete the group.
RIDESHARE has played restaurants, jazz clubs, private parties, and art shows from coast to coast.They love their hometown of Laguna Beach, but are free to travel wherever the music takes them!
Our instrumentation can adapt to meet your needs.
Electric piano and organ (stacked) and flute, with two small amps is our basic setup for smaller venues.
With a little more space we can add vibes (still as a duo).
Our trio setup, with full PA, is flute, electric piano and organ, vibes, and a percussionist.
Or set a Mid-Century Modern lounge theme with Jazz Accordion!
