Brent Berry Band

with Max Paley / Justin Barnett

Jackpot Music Hall

Lawrence is just one of the many locales with which Brent Berry has enjoyed a longstanding relationship. The musician has spent time in Kansas City, New Mexico, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and busking all across Europe in a quest to hone his skills. The rhythm-obsessed Berry was drawn to many of these places in search of learning specific styles from noted instructors, whether it was conga lessons from former Sun Ra Arkestra member Matthew Brown Jr. to immersing himself in bomba and plena traditions from the local elders in San Juan. Now Berry is back in Lawrence with a reconstituted version of his self-named group.
