Terrace Dynamic plays the foundations of jazz music from the likes of Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck, and Herbie Hancock. Their engaging style invites all generations to partake in the emotional complexity and beauty that is jazz. The group is formed by Blake Calhoun on piano, Noah Kraemer on percussion, and Adam York on bass. Their nuanced repertoire consists of jazz standards, mixed with funk, latin, and bebop based improvisations.
First time for using Gigsalad, or booking a band at all. Used to book the entertainment for a holiday party. Process was very smooth. Communication with the band was perfect. Adam was very timely responding to all messages. They were more than willing to modify the set list for us. They arrived and set up on time, were all very polite, and most importantly, the music was FANTASTIC! Would highly recommend Terrace Dynamic!
Response from Terrace Dynamic:
Thanks so much Tonia! We had a lot of fun!

After graduating from John Brown University, classically trained pianist Blake Calhoun moved to Kansas City looking for something new. Unfamiliar with the rich, historical jazz scene of KC, Calhoun didn't quite know where to start. When various twists of fate led him to meet bassist and KC native Adam Scott York, they immediately bonded over their love of jazz. Both looking to find an outlet for this they brought on local UMKC student Noah Kraemer on drums and Terrace Dynamic was formed. They have since played shows at local jazz bars such as The Phoenix, office parties, weddings, and other events, and are dedicated to bringing the beauty of jazz to as many as possible.
