Cellarman and Suburban Ambassador of the Sugar Maple. Though my favorite thing to drink is Mescal, I'm fine like wine when I start to rap.
I like walks in the woods and fires at night, add a splash of bourbon, and I'm feelin' alright.

Option Milwaukee presents one of the most exciting ensembles working in contemporary improvised music, The DKV Trio, with Hamid Drake (drums), Kent Kessler (bass), and Ken Vandermark. The band has been active since the mid 1990s and has released eleven recordings, including their most recent album, which came out in the autumn of 2016: Collider (that features the trio paired with the Scandinavian group, The Thing). This will be DKV's only concert in 2016, with 2017 bringing the ensemble back to the road (in Canada to promote their upcoming release on Not Two Records, from their concert at the Sugar Maple in winter of 2017). Sure to be an extraordinary way to conclude this year and bring something positive to the start of the next.

The high impact duo of Paal Nilssen-Love (drums) and Ken Vandermark (reeds) has been working together at an accelerated rate since 2002, and they have put out seven eight of exceptional and wide ranging improvised music since then. Though they have both worked in many critically acclaimed groups- from the Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet, Lean Left (with Terrie Hessels and Andy Moor of The Ex) to Double Tandem (with Dutch saxophonist, Ab Baars)- they have continued to return to their duo for more than a dozen years because it remains crucial to their creative output. Their concert at the Sugar Maple on January 25th will follow three days of recording at Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago.
