The Ralph Carney Memorial Octet
Rubber City

The Ralph Carney Memorial Octet has come together for the Summit in memory of Ralph Carney, a saxophonist and pillar of the San Francisco Bay Area music community for 28 years. The band will evoke his sounds and boundless energy, while embracing the musicians who loved, admired, and collaborated with him. Formed especially for this concert, the Octet unites the best players in the Bay Area to play new arrangements of Ralph's compositions - featuring material and members of his Serious Jass Project. David Slusser and Richard Saunders from Rubber City will join Karina Denike and Michael McIntosh from the Serious Jass Project, along with reedists Rent Romus and Phillip Greenlief (also the arranger), Myles Boisen on guitar, and Suki O'Kane on drums.

Ohio expatriates David Slusser and the late Ralph Carney with Chris Ackerman created the band Rubber City to pay tribute to their rust belt beginnings in Akron Ohio. Slusser, Carney, and drummer Chris Ackerman all barely escaped Ohio without gross disfigurements from industrial accidents to make music on the West Coast. This version of Rubber city will pay tribute to the recently departed Ralph Carney featuring alto saxophonist Sheldon Brown and bassist Richard Saunders filling out the quartet.
David Slusser - saxophones, Sheldon Brown - saxophones, Chris Ackerman - drums Richard Saunders - double bass
