Formed in the summer of 2011 with the stated goal of gathering some of New York’s top young musicians and songwriters into one group, BAAM! is an energetic indie rock band with a strong Blues and jazz influence. The seven band members have performed with some of the world’s top musicians including Steve Wilson, The Kelly Bell Band, Jimmy Heath, Mulgrew Miller, Jimmy Heath, Bob Mintzer, Darondo, Soul Cannon, Michael Formenek and The Fatum Brothers.
