Wave Cage combines jazz, electronic, and funk sensibilities into a live experience that defies and blends genres, challenges the ear, and invites audience members to re-engage with and reimagine jazz and improvised music.
Wave Cage is Nolan Schroeder (sax/electronics), Ryan Garmoe (trumpet/electronics/keyboards), Jarrett Purdy (keyboards/synthesizers/electronics) and Chris Jensen (drums).
Stylistically, the band draws heavily from Mission Creek headliners from years past, including Mark Guiliana’s Beat Music and Makaya McCraven. Following the release of their debut project, The Portrait EP, Wave Cage was awarded a grant from the Iowa Arts Council to record a collaborative album with Iowa artists set for release in Spring 2022.
