The Kash Wright Trio was formed in March of 2010. Our repertoire consists of songs from the Great American Songbook, original compositions by members of the band, and arrangements of popular songs from the 70‘s, 80‘s, 90‘s and today.
Bassist Mike Montgomery began studying jazz at Virginia Tech playing electric bass. After a 15-year, post-graduation hiatus, he made a commitment to the double bass and straight-ahead jazz. Montgomery, also a native of D.C., formed his own quartet briefly before landing gigs with local artistsincluding vocalists Tara Hofmann and Sandy Asirvatham, and guitarist Kevin Mittleman. Montgomery has recorded with bass icon Victor Wooten and is known for giving the music “just what it needs” in the way of low-end support.
Born and raised in the City of Brotherly Love, drummer Bobby Beall is a product of the sounds of Philly: Harold Melvin, MFSB, The O’Jays, and The Stylistics. Influenced by a musical family, Beall taught himself to play drums by listening to recordings by Billy Cobham, Narada Michael Walden, Airto, and Peter Erskine. He developed his love for jazz while attending Howard University. Always a crowd pleaser, Beall is known for his energy and infectious grooves.
