Patrick Psihogios You probably don’t know Patrick and you probably don’t know any of his collaborators, but that doesn’t change the fact that this free-lance bassist has over 56 years performing experience in such diverse genres as pop, bluegrass, folk, big band, jazz and salsa.
Jonathan Chung was introduced to the piano at the age of 5 and by the age of 15, he had achieved his Grade 10 with First Class Honours from the Royal Conservatory of Music. He then began exploring jazz and quickly fell in love with its improvisatory and expressive nature. A self-taught jazz pianist, Jonathan enjoys songs that evoke emotions and are harmonically complex, with his greatest musical influences being Debussy, Rachmaninoff, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, among others. He is an experienced musician having performed jazz at various venues across Guelph and Toronto including restaurants, bars, private events, restaurants, and hospitals. In addition, he is also the keyboardist for Shebad, a band based in Guelph specializing in neo-jazz compositions, which has exposed him to the world of music production and modern-era jazz. Jonathan is also a recent graduate from the University of Guelph, where he studied Biomedical Sciences. While he aspires to attend medical school one day to become a physician, there is no doubt that music will stay with him for the rest of his life.
