Clarence Robinson Bio

Originally from Brooklyn, NY, bassist Clarence Robinson recently moved to Seaside from the L.A. area. He has played with some of the greats in the jazz world, including Carlos Garnett, Frank Vicari and others. He studied with the legendary Reggie Workman before studies at the Manhattan School of Music and California Institute of the Arts in Santa Clarita, California. Robinson was a longtime jazz trio bassist at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. He has appeared as himself in the films “Whiplash” and “La La Land.”

Joey Altruda Bio

From Joey Altruda's website:  " In 1989, with the help of drummer Willie McNeil, he created the band Jump With Joey, performing American Jump Swing music and early forms of Jamaican Ska. The group became a keystone in the revival of traditional Jamaican Ska, Rocksteady, and Reggae, recording 4 CDs and performing several times in Japan and New York. During the early to mid nineties, the band broke new musical barriers by introducing heavier elements of Afro-Cuban and Jazz into the Ska idiom and gained further notoriety for backing pioneering Jamaican musicians such as Roland Alphonso, Laurel Aitken, Ernest Ranglin, Rico Rodriguez, Ken Lazarus et al.  In 2006 Altruda was awarded a lifetime achievement award for the Preservation Of Jamaican Music and Culture.
