The Chris Klich Jazz Quintet was named the #1 jazz band by readers of the San Diego Union-Tribune for the year 2002. Other nominees were Gilbert Castellanos, Peter Sprague, and Hollis Gentry. Check out a complete list of winners.
The Chris Klich Jazz Quintet was also nominated for three straight years for the San Diego Music Awards, in 2001, 2002, and 2003. The band placed second in the category of "best jazz band," behind Gilbert Castellanos in 2001 and 2002, and Jaime Valle in 2003. We're so honored to be considered in the same category as these fine San Diego jazz musicians. If you haven't heard them yet, be sure to check them out, and support a live music venue near you!
