Craig Ventresco and Meredith Axelrod
In a hunt for something even more charming than painted eggs? For many years Craig Ventresco led the San Francisco-based band Bo Grumpus and has played most of the trad jazz festivals. He has also toured widely as a soloist specializing in ragtime-era compositions. He is featured on the soundtracks to films Crumb and Ghostworld. Craig is a compulsive record collector specializing in ragtime on cylinders and discs made before 1910. Since moving to New York two years ago, he has played with a number of trad jazz bands. Recent recording credits include discs for Origin Jazz Library, Stomp Off, Rydodisc and Shanachie.
Meredith Axelrod is Meredith Axelrod! Here is some information germane to a "bio": "I perform regularly with the great Craig Ventresco and as a singer and guitarist for Devine's Jug Band. Venues at which I've performed include: the Great American Music Hall, The Freight and Salvage, The Bottom of the Hill, The JCC, Ashkenaz, The Starry Plough, Amnesia, the Makeout Room, Red Hill Books, The UCSF Library Concert Series, the West Coast Ragtime Festival, the Blind Boone Ragtime Festival. I performed for a segment of the local news, and I was interviewed with Dennis Pash on KUSF radio.
