Blake Shaw wears many hats in the community which include gigging weekly on double & electric bass, leading educational endeavors for students and teachers alike, performing as a vocalist, composing/arranging music, serving as Cornell College’s jazz band director/bass professor as well as managing the Kirkwood Community College Jazz & Popular Music Department.

Blake brings a wide variety of inspiration to the table and being an ambitious and hungry bassist has helped him navigate through many different genres of music and work with a wide variety of artists. In his own project, The Blake Shaw Trio he not only showcases his original compositions but adds a mix of jazz-influenced arrangements that take swing music to another level. Dan Padley on guitar and Nolan Schroeder on sax will be joining him to add just the right touch and groove you’ll need to have a fantastic time.
