September 15 @ 7:30 pm


Arts + Literature Laboratory and DIG JAZZ present Helen Feest’s group Feestet on Friday, September 15, 2023, 7:30pm at the Wisconsin Union Play Circle. Free admission.

Feestet will be performing original music from their upcoming release, Does Anyone Have the Time.

Fans know Feestet (pronounced “Feest-tet”) in many iterations: a duet, quartet, quintet, and lately, a sextet. Feestet formed when members met at the New Breed Jazz Jam–a popular Madison jazz jam that ran for over 20 years.

Cutting their teeth on the Great American Songbook, Feestet has performed at several notable Madison-area venues and events: North Street Cabaret, Cafe Coda, the Tasting Room of Monona, and the Madison Jazz Festival. New fans often say: “I don’t like jazz much, but I loved that!”

Thus, Feestet dubs their sound “gateway jazz.” Jazz gets a bad rap for being too ‘elitist’ or ‘difficult’. Feetet’s mission is to create jazz music loved by all people: songs that non-jazz lovers can enjoy. Songs that will perk the ears of jazz enthusiasts. Songs that harken back and push forward this timeless genre
