Šoltis Charette Štveráček Super Trio (USA/CZ/SK)
The Šoltis-Charette-Štveráček Super Trio has taken the Czech Republic by storm. The group consists of NYC organist, Brian Charette, Ondřej Štveráček on Sax and EFX, and Dano Šoltis on drums and loops. Over the last 10 years, the group has played many festivals and concerts in the Czech Republic and has developed a great following. The concerts are engaging, surprising, and thoroughly enjoyable. SCS's music features hip breakbeats and subtle electronica to create otherworldly soundscapes upon which the group plays memorable tunes and burning solos.
