Wave & Circuit Presents! Basses Covered ...plays rock, folk, wop, country and jazz music!

Marlene Hutchins picked up the guitar at age 10, driven to learn popular folk songs and transistor radio hits. A huge Beatle fan, she’d play and sing harmony with her sister and cousins to every song they could learn, as fast as they could learn them. Auditions for talent shows followed, and soon she convinced the owner of Cafe Galleria, an Italian restaurant below the Joni-Mitchell-made-famous Laurel Canyon Country Store, to hire her to perform a solo series for dinner guests.

In 1989, Marlene moved to Montana and found herself in the circle of huge, warm and welcoming music family, which led her to the musicians (Marlene, Carla Green, and Eric Pfeiffer) that form the band Basses Covered, a trio she embraces.

Basses Covered has been blazing their way through Missoula, from festivals to tap rooms to markets to back yard patios.  We play well-known and little-known songs from our favorite music libraries of artists that include Ray Charles, the original Moody Blues, Everly Brothers, Moonglows and our own tunes.

Veteran musicians Carla (bass, guitar), Eric (rhythm and lead guitar) and Marlene (guitar, bass) form this harmonious trio that makes you wonder where all that percussion is coming from without a drummer. We just might get you tapping your feet or swing-dancing with a partner. It's been known to happen.

Wave & Circuit Presents! crosstalk

crosstalk is comprised of Bill Kautz, leader/trumpet, Christopher Gray, guitar, Steve Kalling, bass, Emily Silks, drums and Naomi Siegel, trombone and keyboard.  The aim of crosstalk is to consistently create a sound that is unique and original, unlike any other project currently on the streets. We aim to liberate ourselves as players and simultaneously come together in communion by creating interwoven strands of dialogue from multiple perspectives, intensities and styles. Our ideas and commentary as sound artists is about the now. Each of us believes strongly in the healing and spiritual force of music to reach spaces within ourselves that cannot be reached through any other medium. We hope to go there with you and hope you can join us on June 14th at Wave and Circuit.
