Michael Coppola website

The duo in jazz seems to be the most intimate capacity… just two players forming the groove, the harmonies, the entire feel all from what they are hearing from one another.

The duo of Barry Ries and Michael Coppola…only trumpet and guitar, will be sure to find new exciting directions for the standard jazz repertoire which they will be performing.
Barry Ries plays both trumpet and drums at the highest levels. He has performed in every major jazz club in the US. Barry has performed with jazz legends such as Gerry Mulligan, Horace Silver, Lionel Hampton, Woody Herman, Duke Jordan, joe Lovano and many more.

Michael Coppola invented the 9 string guitar on which he exclusively performs. At a show at NYC’s Iridium, Les Paul himself once told Michael “you are really on to something, you’re a real innovator”. Coppola’s mastery of the unique instrument has brought him great attention in the jazz guitar world. He has recently played at The Blue Note and the Montreal Jazz festival

Worship services, 10 am and 11 am
