On Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at 7:30PM, the Soundwaves new music series at the Santa Monica Public Library welcomes composer and percussionist Nathan Hubbard and his quartet, performing a set of original music in the Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium.

Hubbard is an in-demand performer in styles from musical theater to hip-hop to experimental music and has toured and recorded extensively. He won Best Jazz Album at the 2014 and 2017 San Diego Music Awards.

Hubbard has assembled a truly all-star band for this concert. Violinist Jeff Gauthier was a member of Quartet Music, led his own group the Goatette, and has made profound contributions to the Los Angeles music scene running the Cryptogramophone record label, co-founding the Angel City Jazz Festival, and helping manage the Jazz Bakery. Guitarist Max Kutner is a member of Evil Genius and Izela and has toured internationally with both The Grandmothers of Invention and The Magic Band, playing the music of Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart with their former sidemen. Steuart Liebig is the leading electric bassist in the L.A. avant-garde, making his third Soundwaves appearance after a duet with Emily Hay and a trio with G.E. Stinson and Kris Tiner.

The Santa Monica Public Library is the first public library to offer this service to its cardholders. Listings of past and upcoming Soundwaves shows as well as sound and video recordings are at
