Michael Sarian & The Chabones

Performed in Sofar NYC

In 2014, Michael released his debut album as a bandleader, Subtitles. The album saw the beginning of The Chabones (Argentine slang for the dudes...or the schmucks, depending on whom you ask), a group which has progressed from a quintet to a septet, and in 2015 he established Michael Sarian & The Big Chabones, a 16 piece big band alternative. In July of 2015, Michael Sarian & The Chabones went back into the studio with engineer/producer Luis Bacque to track their second album, The Escape Suite, released in the fall of 2015. Michael performs regularly with his own projects and as a sideman in venues throughout the city of New York and all its colorful boroughs, teaches trumpet, theory & composition, works at a non-profit, cooks noodles, enjoys bourbon & wine, goes to the gym, and tries to make the most of his fifteen minute walk to the nearest subway station.
