Singer/trombonist Sam Dimov gained experience performing with multiple jazz bands while at Temple University in Philadelphia, including the city’s legendary wedding band Jellyroll.

With a Bachelor of Music from Temple under his belt, Dimov now studies for his Master’s at UT-Austin. Inevitably he graces the stage at Monk’s, a club that throws its doors open to students and recitals to give them valuable experience.

New work by B. Shawn Cox is always a delight for the eyes (and a few other senses), and here the masterful painter and arch wit brings a bounty of pop philosophy with a tinge of irony (and much big hair) – inspired by lore, social identity narratives, and childhood memories of his West Texas roots.
