  • Working Draft Beer Company 1129 East Wilson Street Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

The Working Draft Trio consists of Wilder Deitz on keyboards (and other instruments), Mandell Mathis on the sax, and Mike Allen on the drums. 

Wilder Deitz is an accomplished keyboardist who can play the bass, drums, and even the accordion. Was a prominent member of UW's Black Music Ensemble while at the UW and started and manages the Black Music Ensemble at East High School.

Mandell Mathis is a young saxophone powerhouse who specializes in improvisation. Mandell was a member of East High's and UW's Black Music Ensemble.

Matt Allen drums with Koi, Kainalu, the Wilder Deitz Singers, and, of course, the Working Draft Trio. He is, along with Wilder and Mandell, an alumnus of the legendary University of Wisconsin Black Music Ensemble.

Together these three create a jazz sound that is playful and will keep your head nodding and toes tapping. And if you're lucky, they'll have some friends along to join in the fun.

They'll play two sets, 7pm and 8pm. 

The beer will be flowing and there's no cover charge. This guys have rocked WDBC before and it's a great time, don't miss out!
