We’re back…

Bringing together the creative talents of five gifted musicians, bug is modern in conception while still grounded deeply in the jazz tradition. Drawing on an eclectic range of influences, the compositions are marked by a clear sense of melody, a cinematic scope of orchestration, and a sense of openness that lets the band interact at the highest levels. The infectious grooves laid down by the rhythm section allow the lead instruments to create freely, blurring the line between the composed and improvised sections of the music. bug is a journey among friends, always striving to create and communicate that which is greater than the sum of its parts.
