Fuchsia is a jazz group. Fuchsia plays everything from bop to the sounds of today’s jazz music.
Fuchsia itself is a trio consisting of Joseph Boulet on drums, Oliver Scott on piano/keys, and Matt Stephens on bass.
Even though this is our core, we like to feature our talented friends. For both of our gigs at the barn we will be featuring somebody. For our first gig, we hope to feature Breaux (bro) Higgins, a guitarist.
