Open Interest is a Green Bay, WI based group that has been winning over jazz enthusiasts in and around Wisconsin since 2004. During this time, they have gained notoriety as a band equally capable of packing area clubs, performing at major festivals, or providing the perfect atmosphere at private parties. The group's sets consist of a pleasing blend of standards, infused with the artists' own dazzling originals and arrangements. John Salerno (saxophone and flute), Greg Pagel (keyboards), Craig Hanke (bass), and Terry Iattoni (drums) form the tightest nucleus of any quartet you will find in the area, and are occasionally joined by the smooth sounds of the area's top vocalists.
The invigorating sound created by this group often inspires and challenges its members, and treats their audience to sets radiating with adventure and precision. The high level of skill that each member brings to the group enables them to adapt to the specific sensibility of any environment. This versatility is evident in the diversity of venues that host the group's performances. From the vacationing crowds that witnessed the Quartet's appearances at Gordon's Lodge, to the wine sipping connoisseurs who found their musical appetite satisfied at Parallel 44 Winery in Kewaunee, audiences can be sure that Open Interest will enhance their surroundings perfectly. Venues such as Fox Cities Jazz Fest, Green Bay's Bayfest, Green Bay's Artstreet Festival, Savor Green Bay, Miller Park in Milwaukee, A's Dockside, Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club, A'Bravo, Fratello's, formal events in the Lambeau Atrium, and several area country clubs have all welcomed the group's performances. With these varied experiences under their belt, Open Interest has the capability to create whatever mood you require: sophisticated dinner party, smoky jazz club, elegant restaurant entertainment, festival headliner, and beyond.
