Teen Town is a 2019 DownBeat award-winning powerhouse jazz fusion trio led by award-winning bassist Gabriel Severn (15), with Logan Bedard (17) on drums and Connor Rohrer (19) on keys.
The band is taking audiences by storm with their energy, their undeniable chemistry, and their exceptional talent. While their name pays homage to one of the great jazz fusion tunes of the '70s, their music spans several decades and genres, from originals to the Average White Band to Weather Report to Chick Corea. Close your eyes and you'd think they've been playing for decades, but despite their ages, they've each made hundreds of live appearances.
"Teen Town unassumingly walked onstage, then proceeded to floor the place with 30 minutes of jazz fusion covers from such luminaries as Weather Report and David Sanborn." -The Reading Eagle
