About Mingus Amungus

Mingus Amungus was founded by Beach Dad Miles Perkins in 1993. Using the inspiration of Charles Mingus’ music as a foundation, but also operating outside the confine of traditional jazz, the group quickly became a Bay Area favorite at local clubs, jazz festivals, and concert halls. Mingus Amungus includes Miles Perkins on acoustic bass, Gavin Distasi, trumpet, Joshi Marshall, saxophones, Marty Wehner, trombone, Steve Rossi, drums, and Martin G. Reynolds provides vocals.  Caitlin Reynolds will all sing with the band at the Winter Jazz Night.  The all-star band weaves its way through Mingus’ charts, as well as their own original compositions, with hard-hitting be-bop, funk, and classical influences. The band then sprinkles San Francisco’s native acid jazz flavor into the mix with a variety of lyricists and singers, thereby bringing Mingus’ work into a contemporary age. The group has toured the globe, playing clubs and festivals and was recognized with a BAMMIE for Most Outstanding Jazz Club Band.
