SVSU Jazz Ensemble welcomes guest musician for fall concert

Selections to be performed include Joan Moss’ “That September Feeling,” Neal Herti’s “Splanky,” and Gordon Goodwin's “Back Row Politics.”

Ikeler started playing piano at age 7, taking private lessons concentrating on classical music. He branched out later to study the rock and jazz genres. He began performing in the 1970s with groups such as Asmodeus Dream, Sass and In The Red. In the 1980s, he performed jazz regularly with percussionist/singer Ron Trombly at Mr. Gibby's restaurant in Flint. Now Ikeler plays with the classic rock group, Roxius.
