Zach Beeson Trio
Bassist, Zach Beeson, grew up playing jazz gigs with his trumpet-playing dad in Columbia, MO. As a Mid-Missouri teenager, Zach discovered eager, like-minded, talented jazz nerds in Hannibal & Jefferson City. As the young dudes joined forces, Andrew Ouellette, Brian Steever, and Zach played on steamboats, inside Mark Twain museums, at lake houses, and inside sushi Jazz clubs around a 200 mile radius. As fate would have it, these three amigos ended up at the UMKC Jazz Waterhole together like a glorious prison of fun memories!
