Red Couch

These young men make up the Red Couch jazz band. They are, in front on drums, Justin Collins; in back, Preston Stott – Trumpet, Conner Chambers; Kalon Upton and Walker Resha.

The young jazz musicians who call their band “Red Couch” ended up spending 3 afternoons playing in Errol Allan Park in downtown Guntersville between Christmas and New Year’s.

Their session last Thursday might have been their longest. They started playing at noon and when to 5 p.m. They’d planned to stop at 3 p.m., but they were having so much fun they kept going.

They said the only ill effects were their lips were a little tired.

The young men are all part of the Crimson Guard marching band and the jazz band at Guntersville High School. They were hoping to get some exposure with their impromptu concerts in the park.

The band members are:

Justin Collins – Drums

Preston Stott – Trumpet

Conner Chambers – Sax

Kalon Upton – Baritone

Walker Resha – Sax

They’re interested in playing at events and can be reached by email at
