Citizen Swing — Connor Law + Thomson Knoles
February 7 @ 6:00 pm
Join us for Citizen Swing, our new twice-monthly Wednesday jazz nights. Come through for a night of excellent, curated local jazz talent and classic cocktails. The fun starts at 6pm when we spin up some cool, old jazz vinyl, and then continues at 7pm with live sets by Connor Law and Thomson Knoles. Free!
Connor Law is a freelance bassist, bandleader and composer based in Asheville, NC. He got his start in the music business after graduating from UNCA in 2017 by going on the road as a tour manager for the progressive bluegrass band, Jon Stickley Trio. After leaving that position he realized his passion was in performance, and more specifically, jazz performance. He began working as a full time musician in Asheville in 2018 and has been performing with many of the top musicians in the area since then.
THOMSON KNOLES: Thomson Knoles is an accomplished jazz pianist, seamlessly blending instrumental hip-hop and funk into his repertoire. His passion for music ignited at age 8, growing stronger over the years. Operating from his fully-equipped home studio, this Berklee College of Music graduate (’16) specializes in enriching projects with masterful keyboard, organ, and synth contributions. He recently scored the music to Nike’s Fathers Day appreciation campaign for their US website and has been producing music under his name, thommyknoles, since 2020.
