MARYSVILLE, CA (MPG) - After a five-year hiatus, IDLE FRET returns with its brand of hot instrumental music to Yuba City with humor, energy and verve at the Sutter Theater Center for the Arts in Yuba City.

IDLE FRET’s repertoire includes creative originals, cinematic medleys, and covers of jazz standards. IDLE FRET will perform at 7 p.m. June 22.  Tickets are $20 for general admission and $10 for anyone under 18 and are available at yubasutterarts.org or by calling 530-742-ARTS.

IDLE FRET began in 2010 as a covey of local musicians under the leadership of Jim Achilles to blow off some jazz steam. Achilles wrote the band's original tunes and arranged the covers, setting the scene for each player to shine on multiple styles and instruments.

What will you hear at an IDLE FRET concert? Latin, swing, standards, pop jazz and fusion played on everything from the flute to the trombone, all the saxophones, keyboards, and the occasional EWI or electronic wind instrument. Supported by a tight rhythm section, the band has a powerful and energetic sound.

Eight musicians make up the band: Achilles (guitars, trombone, occasional voice), David Coe (saxes, clarinets, EWI), Judy Coe (flute), Carmen Aguilar (keyboards and keytar), Ken Horton (drums), David Bole (bass), Doug Joksh (saxes) and Obie Leff (trumpet).

“We are excited to welcome Jim Achilles and IDLE FRET into the Sutter Theater Center for the Arts for their first concert hall performance in many years and the first ever in our newest venue,” said David Read, executive director of Yuba Sutter Arts & Culture, the owners and operators of the Sutter Theater Center for the Arts. “There is literally something for everyone in the group’s repertoire and the audience will love the variety performed by all the incredible local talent.”

Support live music in Yuba-Sutter! Tickets are at yubasutterarts.org.
