Winter Jazz Series 2022: Ed Fast & Conga Bop

January 14, 2022
Winter Jazz Series 2022: Ed Fast & Conga Bop

As the percussion playing leader of Conga-Bop, the hard-swinging Latin jazz ensemble, Ed Fast has become a celebrated figure. As a versatile, Hartt School-trained percussionist, Fast is also right at home sitting-in on occasion with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, touring with premier Broadway road shows throughout Russia, China, Japan and South Korea, or gigging in backup bands at Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun accompanying big-name, casino favorites like Aretha Franklin and Paul Anka.

Besides being a bandleader, composer, arranger and much-in-demand utility player, Fast is a multi-instrumentalist who not only plays drums but also timbales, congas and, far too rarely, vibes, a beautiful mallet percussion instrument he dearly loves. 

The Palace Theater abides by all State and Federal COVID-19 guidelines and recommendations.
