Spielpalast Cabaret, Myra Flynn
Jesse graduated from the University of Vermont in 2008 where he received a double degree in Marketing and Jazz Studies. He studied composition, arranging, improvisation, drums, and piano with Dr. Alexander Stewart, as well as pianist Tom Cleary (Mike Gordon Band), and drummer Jeff Salisbury (former drummer for Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley). Jesse is currently one of the musical directors for theSpielpalast Cabaret, a vaudville-style musical which covers a range of music from Kurt Weill, to Bessie Smith, to belly dancing from the far east, which he arranges for and performs with. He also performs and tours with Myra Flynn, a indie/soul singer/songwriter/pianist also based in Burlington, VT. His Green Mountain snare drum provides the control and sensitivity to dynamics that his music demands.
