Ott & Hunter: Bluesette

Since being formed in 2018, Bluesette has established itself as one of the premier jazz combos on Whidbey Island. The group combines the backgrounds of outstanding musicians with extensive experience as music performers and educators. For this engagement, Bruce Gallagher is joined by Gary Wittlich and Richard Hughes for a jazzy evening of bossa nova, blues and swing.
Bruce Gallagher leads Bluesette and is an accomplished performer on woodwind and brass instruments. A career music educator, conductor and show director and the featured tenor saxophone soloist with the Harry James Tribute Band, Bruce has performed on stage with artists ranging from the Mills Brothers to Kay Starr. He’s toured with Charlie Worsham and performed throughout the US with various groups and ensembles. He collaborates regularly with other ensembles and recording artists.
Gary Wittlich was on the faculty of the University of Indiana as a professor of music theory and has honed his piano skills through decades of performing at clubs and venues. His masterful grasp of jazz styles enables Bluesette to perform a wide range of jazz standards.
