Hear the name ‘Steve Peplin’ in Milwaukee, and it’s sure to be met with recognition — Peplin has not only been playing for years in Milwaukee’s clubs, but has been an integral part of the jazz music curriculum at both Lawrence University in Appleton and Milwaukee Area Technical College. His fresh style regarding classic jazz compositions has been met with enthusiasm and Peplin’s energetic collaborations in both his trio and duo with Neil Davis are some of the best in Milwaukee’s live jazz scene. Catch Peplin and Davis at Frank’s Power Plant for their ‘Live Jazz Fridays’ series this Friday, June 24th at 6 p.m. Also take up the chance to catch The Steve Peplin Trio live on WMSE tonight for Local/Live at 8 p.m. CST. Stream online at WMSE.org or at 91.7 FM. Missed out? Catch the performance in the WMSE archives.
