Weldon Street Jazz Trio
Weldon Street was birthed by a small group of students from Seminole State College, starting with small gigs around the school, eventually growing to take on recurring gigs in Historic Sanford, and expanding their footprint to the greater Orlando area. The band has further grown into a 6 piece jazz band, performing at private events, venues, and hosting their own events like jazz jams, and charity relief concerts. www.weldonstreet.com
Landon Noland is an Oviedo resident who has been playing in Central Florida, since he was 15 years old. He is a Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, or as he prefers to say, string strummer/piano finneser.” He got his start playing open mics, most notably at local Irish pub, Fiddler’s Green, where as a self-taught musician he developed his sound.
Since then, he has been on multiple podcasts and radio shows, written, recorded & released his own music and has even played at the Hard Rock Hotel Universal Studios. You can find his music on YouTube and popular streaming services, such as Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, Pandora etc.
Jazz vocalist and Frank Sinatra tribute artist, Michael Mirand has been performing throughout N America from home State Florida to British Columbia, Canada and all points in between. Michael can be seen and heard performing with his Rat Pack pallies “Sammy” and “Dean,” to his Sounds of Sinatra Show, or fronting the Space Coast Big Band, to working with jazz ensembles, i.e. The Jazz Cats, concert halls, theaters, clubs, festivals, wherever the demand. He also has recorded a number of CD’s, which include original compositions and standards www.michaelmirand.com
Tres Longwell is a self-taught musician living and “playing it by ear” in Old Town Oviedo. He plays sax, flute, and guitar (no, not all at once) and has been appearing regularly for holiday events at the Caribe Royale hotel for 11 years, as well as many corporate events and private parties throughout Central Florida.
He calls his genre “Easy Jazz”– not because it’s easy to play (it is) — but because he hopes it’s easy to listen to. This is a one-man duo, in which his guitar work is recorded beforehand and the flute or sax is performed live.
At this event, Tres will be playing some of his favorite classic popular tunes and each rendition will be a reverential homage to a timeless melody, embellished with uninhibited improvisation: “I love these pieces and the pure minimalistic synergy that occurs between the acoustic guitar and the flute or sax.” email@example.com
