An uncommon duo with extraordinary sonic reach, Promenade Sauvage carries the creative energy of a fresh generation to any and all with a healthy curiosity. At the wheel of this international project, Luca Piovesan (accordion) and Maarten Stragier (classical and electric guitar) have combined their home bases of Venice and Brussels and struck up intense collaborations with talented young composers on four continents. They bring all-new, high- grade repertoire, with the contagious enthusiasm of recent discovery. Promenade Sauvage will perform works by Berklee faculty members.

Jackson Schultz, professor in the Jazz Composition Department at Berklee, leads this jazz band with music chosen from a competition of student composers and arrangers. The young student writers, having passed a screening process, are offered the opportunity to work with Schultz to edit and to fine tune their music for performance. From that group of writers, Schultz selects certain pieces to be performed by this band in their spring concert.
TFDI is a three-man acoustic band, featuring Tony Lucca, Jay Nash, and Matt Duke. The three songwriters joined forces in 2009 for a coheadlining tour of the United States. Early on in the tour, it became evident to the three that, together, they possessed a powerful musical chemistry as their three individual sets began to blur into one cohesive concert. On a day off in Chicago, Jake Samuels, the talent buyer at SPACE in Evanston, invited the three to their backstage studios to record a few live performances. It didn’t take long to put down takes of the four songs that would become the TFDI EP. On November 24, 2009, just a few days after its release, the TFDI EP reached no. 1 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter Top Albums chart and remained there for weeks.
