Planet D Nonet

2019 Sundays in the Garden Summer Series.

Artist: Planet D Nonet
Brewery: Eastern Market Brewing Co
NonProfit: Ozone House

Planet D Nonet is Detroit’s own down and dirty little big band, known nationally for curating some of the best in early jazz traditions and Black-American musical influences from the 20s, 30s and 40s. More “hot” than “sweet,” according to PD9 cofounder and bandleader RJ Spangler, who started the nine piece ensemble with longtime musical partner James O’Donnell in 2007.

PD9 is a pared down version of the traditional big bands of the 1930s, and they frequently feature guest vocalists, adding to the versatility of the band’s show. The number of musicians in the lineup is reminiscent of the earliest big bands, when swing was still evolving into the sound that defined jazz music’s most popular era.

The group has been nominated and awarded multiple honors over the past decade, including seven Detroit Music Awards. Most recently, they were named 2019 DMA for Outstanding Traditional Jazz Artist/Group, and not surprisingly that was not the first time they received that award.

Eastern Market Brewing Co
Community. Camaraderie. Craft.
We built a place to share all three. With a lot of hard work and an elephant-sized amount of luck, we landed in Eastern Market to pursue our dreams of opening an intensely local brewery. We create classics that continue the tradition of craft beer in the city of Detroit, plus one-of-a-kind beers with local flavor that only the freshest Eastern Market ingredients can provide.

At Eastern Market Brewing Co, we’re always brewing & you’re always welcome.
