The Wright State University Jazz Band live in studio at WYSO.

The Wright State University Jazz Band will be presenting their regular spring concert later this season in April. The twenty-plus piece ensemble, led by David Diamond, Professor of Trumpet at WSU, came by WYSO's studio to give a preview of their upcoming performance and speak with Excursions host Evan Miller.

The Wright State University Jazz Band's spring concert will be held on Monday, April 11 at 8 PM, in Schuster Hall at WSU's Creative Arts Center, and is free and open to the public. For more information, visit wright.edu/music.

Evan Miller is a percussionist, lover of sound, and is probably buying too many cassette tapes online right now. Evan got his start in radio in 2012 at WWSU at Wright State University, where he was studying percussion performance. He followed through with both endeavors and eventually landed a lucrative dual career playing experimental music at home and abroad, and broadcasting those sounds to unsuspecting listeners Sunday nights on The Outside. Maintaining a connection to normal music, Evan also plays drums in bands around the area, and hosts WYSO's Midday Music show. When not doing something music-related, Evan is most likely listening to podcasts or watching food videos at home with his cat.
