Guitarist, Singer, Songwriter Jazzy Jan Loe performs jazz guitar and solo guitar instrumentals in the style of Micheal Hedges and Leo Kotke. Her exposure to music started at an early age. Her parents were at a concert by jazz guitarist great Charlie Byrd and her father kept timing her mother's contractions while asking to wait until the intermission. She studied jazz and classical: voice, guitar and piano at William Patterson College in NJ, Mills College in CA, University of Houston, University of St. Thomas in Houston TX and privately from Bucky and John Pizzarelli, Bob Devos, Vic Juris, Joshua Breakstone, Eddie Decker and Paul Meyers.
Jan composed a jazz instrumental which appeared on Melrose place in 1992 and an avant-garde oratorio performed at Outpost in the Burbs. Ms. Loe has performed at the Smithsonian and many Jazz and folk venues across the country such as Club Bene an Trumpets Jazz Club. She appeared as Henny Penny in the NY premiere of the children's opera Chicken Little (where the sky really fell much to Sigmund Frog's dismay). Jan has shared the stage with such amazing players as Gene Bertoncini, Cliff Eberhardt, Mundell Lowe, Mike Richmond, Vitali Imereli, Diane Perry and Steve Johns.
