Vanguard brings jazz standards to 11th & Grant.
Vanguard is a jazz quartet of four young men from Helena who play with a smooth honesty and intention that sets them apart. Monte Grise (saxophones) and Jeremy Slead (drums) are both music teachers in the public schools. Mark Walker (piano), who used to play trumpet with the Helena Symphony, is a chemical engineer and Rennan Rieke (bass), works in communications/computers for the State of Montana. All Montana natives, this quartet's pure joy of performing their and other's arrangements of tunes is truly evident from the "standard repertoire" to the "favorites" of jazz music fans.
