Shot x Shot

Shot x Shot is an improvisational acoustic quartet performing original compositions as well as highly interpretive covers steeped in the jazz tradition with experimental sensibilities. They met as students at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA in the spring of 2003. With each musician lending a unique texture, Shot x Shot brings a tasteful and multi-dimensional sound to the Philadelphia music scene. They perform regularly in Philadelphia at the Tritone and St. Mary's Church and in New York City at the C-Note, ABC No Rio, and Cornelia St. Cafe. Shot x Shot released their debut album on HighTwo records in 2006.

Dan Capecchi, drums and percussion, is a native of Minneapolis, MN., and has played drums professionally for eight years. In Minneapolis, he was a member of the rock-folk group, Jackaro, with whom he toured the Midwest and California, and the experimental-computer-pop group, Triangle. He moved to Philadelphia in the Fall of 2003 and has since earned a Master of Music degree from The University of the Arts. He is currently playing, teaching, and writing about music in the Philadelphia area.

Matt Engle, bass, grew up ten minutes outside of Philadelphia in South Jersey. He now resides in Philadelphia where he is a working member of the music scene. Matt studied with Kevin McConnell and Tony Marino while attending The University of the Arts. He has an integral role in Shot by Shot as both a performer and composer. In addition to Shot x Shot, Matt plays with Seth Meicht and Sonic Liberation Front.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
