Swedge Was Formed In May, 2010 When Bob Glassman, Bill Kerr and Joey Glassman met to go over some new jazz tunes for the first time in a jam session. Bob and Bill were band members in a band called Take 2, a Variety Dance Band that plays in and around northern Colorado.
Joey Glassman (Bob's son) was about to graduate high school and had been accepted for college study at the Lamont School of Music / University of Denver. To further fill out the order, Bob called on the services of Rex Spease for wood winds, and Will MorrisonEli Acosta for Guitar & Bass. After the first session at the studio of Classical/New Age Pianist - Louis Colaiannia, it became quite obvious that there was definitely something special in the music and the chemistry of these 5 musicians.
Several weeks later, Bob was informed that Louis was in the process of putting together additional performances and studio recordings for sale/distribution and had commissioned the Services of Steve Hamilton as his Manager. Louis needed a band to further enhance the material and to perform with. It was only natural that the members of Swedge met with Louis, Evelyn Rutenberg (Flute) and Jesse Allen (Cello) to rehearse Louis' new material. Thus, Louis Colaiannia & Company was formed !!
Swedge performs and records with Louis Colaiannia & Company featuring Louis' original material. Swedge Also performs as both an Opening act for Louis and independently as well. Check Out Some Of Swedge's Repertoire.
