TGT Live


Lately Tyson has been gigging extensively with two different versions of the “Tyson Graf Trio.” The more experimental funk and rock group consists of Mike Johnston on drums and Ian Barlow on bass, which plays original compositions surrounded by lots of improvising, all based on straight grooves. The other Trio is a straight ahead jazz endeavor that consists of a variety of some of the most talented bassists and drummers in Northern California, including bass players David O’Keefe, Gerry Pineda, Matt Robinson, and Ian Barlow, and drummers Jeff Minnieweather, Tim Metz, Alex Jenkins, and Brian Kendric. Both Trios perform in and around Sacramento, California, and regularly at the Shady Lady Saloon.
