Jazz in the Park- Random Walk
- Thursday, September 6, 2012 • 5-9pm
Location: Cathedral Square Park
September 6 ~ Random Walk
Founded by guitarist Bill Bonifas who, prior to forming the band, sought the help of bassist Eric Hervey to help finish and arrange his compositions. Drummer Mike Murphy was called and the trio became Random Walk. Dave Matsen soon joined the band, enhancing Bill's work with sax, keyboards and the unique WX7 wind synthesizer. Dave also started adding his own original tunes.
The band became a Friday night staple at Virginia's in Milwaukee, attracting big crowds interested in checking out the band's unique approach to jazz/rock. Guitar virtuoso, Daryl Stuermer (Genesis, Phil Collins) became interested in the band and offered his services to produce the debut album, "Mile One". About that time, John Sedewitz, joined the band adding an array of percussion sounds to the band's originality.
