Acoustic Cafe – The Paul King Trio

January 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm



The Paul King Trio –  phenomenal guitarist Rob Bourassa, outstanding jazz cellist Mike Karoub, and Detroit jazz crooner Paul King, playing hot jazz, tin-pan alley classics and jazz standards.

Paul King is well known to audiences around the Midwest as the vocalist of the swinging and award-winning big band, the Rhythm Society Orchestra.  He has performed since childhood and continued singing throughout his life with a passion for fine tuning his style, technique and jazz chops, but always with a nod to the swingin’ crooners of big band era. Mike Karoub has toured as a bassist with several jazz orchestras with appearances at the Smithsonian, the Kennedy Center, Hollywood Bowl and Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion”, and been a featured cellist in numerous symphony orchestras. Rob Bourassa has played and taught guitar for a living since his youth, as well as working as a featured performer at Greenfield Village and a session guitarist, arranger and producer, working with many artists including Maria Maldaur, Brian Setzer and Drake Bell. Rob has performed many shows with cellist Mike Karoub, and though the two usually work as an improvisational duo, they always look forward to accompanying their favorite singer, Paul King.
