John Dorhauer‘s ensemble, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Players, has a monthly residency at Phyllis’ Musical Inn, a bar in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. HUP plays every second Sunday of the month from 8:00-10:00pm, and admission is free. In 2016 they collaborated with a few Chicago rappers on some new original music composed by John, and the band shot and produced videos for three of the songs which can be viewed below.
John also plays in a big band, the Shout Section Big Band, that recently recorded a new CD which can be purchased here. John is featured as a trumpet player and soloist on the album, and he was also commissioned by the band to arrange six of the works on the album.
Additionally, John is a recipient of a 2013 ASCAP Plus award.
