What is LooseWig?

An exceptionally uninhibited performer; a way-out musician. One whose wig has flipped beyond the norm.
- The Guinness Dictionary of Jazz

LooseWig is more than a jazz group in Portland, Oregon. LooseWig is also a series of house concerts, jam sessions and most of all a state of mind!

The latest musical ensemble incarnation of LooseWig takes the form of a Portland, Oregon jazz sextet including Greg Garrett on trumpet, Ben Fajen on tenor saxophone, Stan Bock on trombone, Tom Sandahl on guitar, Tim Gilson on bass and Mike Snyder on drums!

We recently played on February 25th, 2017 at Al's Den as part of the PDX Jazz Festival! Happily, the packed concert was recorded on audio and video!! Stay tuned to watch and listen to the recording!
