Safe Low Limit
Ottawa based Safe Low Limit is a new jazz oriented group that consists entirely of instruments pitched in the bass clef. This exciting, eclectic band uses tuba, trombone, cello and drums to create a truly different musical experience and incorporates an equally eclectic variety of obscure standards, funk hits and original compositions in a wide variety of jazz and pop styles to leave the audience wondering what in the world will they do next!
Safe Low Limit’s tuba player, Dr. Keith Hartshorn-Walton, is a true virtuoso who is equally impressive pumping out walking bass lines as he is playing be-bop heads or improvising. Trombonist Steve Berndt uses electronic effects to enhance his sound and also provides vocals on a few songs. Cellist Ken Kanwisher is a multi-instrumentalist who trades bass lines and solos with the band. Drummer Michel Delage has an innovative style and has become a top call on the Ottawa jazz scene.
Join SLL for their first concert at La Nouveau Scene on October 13th!
