The Dave Braun Trio

A group that is no stranger to the Jean’s Jazz stage, the Dave Braun Trio returns on Saturday, February 11 at 7 p.m. to the Racine Theatre Guild. Following the traditional jazz style of Barney Kessel, Dave on lead guitar, his wife Paula on fretless bass, and their son Pete on drums, the group thinks, plays, and breathes together. Their emotionally charged music emulates the great piano trios of Oscar Peterson and Nat King Cole. Combining single line playing with full block chord riff, Dave ensures that their jazz music is an expression that comes from the heart. The art of playing it is simply the ability to convey feelings through the songs with the uninhibited openness of one’s heart. In 2001, Joe Mooney created the Jean’s Jazz Series in memory of his wife, Jean, who passed away from ovarian cancer. Since then, over 22,000 people have attended the memorable concerts, grossing more than $125,000 to benefit the Racine Theatre Guild. Jean’s love of RTG and her love of jazz inspired a series that continues to bring together jazz fans and singers and musicians from throughout the region. Tickets can also be purchased at $18 for adults, $16 for seniors, and $5 for students. Call the (262) 633-4218, visit, or stop by the box office weekdays from 12 to 6 p.m. for tickets and more information. Made possible through the support of Educators Credit Union, Landmark Title, Maresh-Meredith and Acklam Funeral Home, and Pruitt Zabkowicz S.C.
