Cover charge: $10 - all proceeds will go to KCCK Fundraiser for Iowa's only dedicated jazz radio station.
Founded by bassist Hannah Marks in 2017, Heartland Trio consists of Barclay Moffitt on tenor saxophone, Hannah Marks on double bass, and Rocky Martin on drums. The band draws from Marks’ musical upbringing in folk and spirituals, while grounded in the group’s improvisational and groove background of jazz and rock.
Heartland Trio’s sound reflects their desire to create with a gritty and spontaneous garage band mentality while exploring beyond the boundaries of the traditional roles of their instruments in a jazz setting.
