Teen Town is Gabriel's award-winning, powerhouse jazz fusion trio. With Logan Bedard on drums and Connor Rohrer on keyboards, these young musicians are taking audiences by storm with their energy, their undeniable chemistry, and their exceptional talent. Named after one of the great jazz fusion tunes of the 1970s by Weather Report, Teen Town brings its own creative voice to the jazz fusion genre, performing original compositions as well as unique covers weaving jazz, funk, rock, and world rhythms into tunes by luminaries such as the Average White Band, Weather Report, the Yellowjackets, and Chick Corea. They've received a DownBeat Student Music Award and the 2020 "Best Jazz Band" Central PA Music Award. In My 2022 they released their debut album, A Month of Sundays.
