Bassist and composer Ben Hedquist has assembled a collective featuring some of the most sought-after musicians in the Valley’s creative music scene. Hedquist and his quintet will be bringing heavy, guitar-driven music, immersive soundscapes, and new arrangements of familiar music to The Nash for an experience that will surely move all listeners.
Since moving to Phoenix in 2012, Hedquist has become one of the Valley’s most in-demand bassists. He performs frequently with Phoenix-based musicians such as Michael Kocour, Jeff Libman, Eric Rasmussen, Keith Kelly, Adam Roberts, and Dom Moio. He has also performed with a growing number of jazz notables, including Joe Locke, Peter Bernstein, George Garzone, Miguel Zenon, Glenn Zaleski, John Hollenbeck, Chris Cheek, George Colligan, Ben Wendel, and Lewis Nash.
