Located in North Alabama. Available anywhere.
Based in & around Huntsville, Alabama, Watters/Felts Project is co-led by trumpeter/flugelhornist Ken Watters & vocalist Ingrid Felts. The band members are among the most in-demand live & studio musicians in the south, and include pianist/keyboardist Keith Taylor, bassist Kelvin Wooten, percussionist Darrell Tibbs & drummer Marcus Pope. Each member has a following in their own right, but as a group, the ensemble has shown strong "marquis-value" from their first performance together. Between their fresh sound & onstage charisma, WFP has rapidly developed a strong & loyal following.
Watters/Felts Project's jazz repertoire is large and varied, consisting of a carefully chosen mix of great standards from virtually every modern musical genre, plus original music contributed by each band member & performed in WFP's own unique style. WFP's programming may include a classic Billie Holiday standard, immediately followed by their own rendition of a Joni Mitchell, Sting or even a Dylan tune. The resulting sound is an instantly appealing brand of jazz that has seldom been heard before, but can knock down walls that can divide vastly different musical genres.
The priority of Watters/Felts Project is simple - to perform great songs & interpret them in their own unique style.
