The Silent Six

The Silent Six is the band that performs with Wordless!

In Wordless!, The Silent Six turn on a dime between 20s jazz, New Music, tango, avant garde styles and film music in order to accompany the 15 graphic sequences in the show. Now, whenever possible, the band has been performing on its own, playing music that unites all of Johnston’s historical musical vehicles. Almost all of these great players are band leaders in their own right (except for Hofstra, the preeminent sideman) and bring their own unique musical personalities to this widely varied music.
