The Coronet Theatre Jazz Festival 2023: Jas Kayser & Chums
Acclaimed drummer Jas Kayser and her band will play afrobeat infused jazz featuring songs from her 2 releases Jas 5ive and Unforced Rhythm of Grace. The percussive and rhythmic heavy band will get your soul grooving.
The prolific 27-year old has been picked up as an artist by Yamaha Drums and Paiste Cymbals and and is winning an international following thanks to her eclectic adventures in sound which have taken her to Panama, Boston and the heart of the exciting London scene, where she is now based.
When Lenny Kravitz invites you to perform a drum duet you say yes. Since her 2018 cameo in the rock legend’s ‘Low’ video, drummer, composer and band leader Jas Kayser hasn’t looked back. Jas has been nominated for MOBO Best Jazz Act 2022, won Jazz FM Breakthrough Act 2021 and Parliamentary Jazz New Comer 2021.
An alumni of the prestigious Berklee College of Music, Jas has found herself playing alongside her mentors Terri Lyne Carrington, Danilo Perez and Ralph Peterson steadily carving out her own niche, with a little help from an ever-expanding collective of musical ‘chums’.
