Paul Collins Artist Management International is pleased to announce the addition of Novak & Haar to our prolific musical family. This up and coming jazz trio from Omaha, Nebraska has developed a rich and diverse musical presence over the years.
The core membership of Novak & Haar is made up of jazz guitarist Jon Novak and bassist Mark Haar. This trio has been performing together as a jazz duo since 1998. Prior to forming Novak & Haar, Jon and Mark had played together in various small jazz combos, large big bands, and musical theater ensembles, Blue House with Rent to Own Horns in and around the Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska metro areas. When Novak & Haar performs as a trio they add Carlos Figueroa on the drum set. In the Spring of 2005, Novak & Haar was added to the Nebraska Arts Council’s Nebraska Touring Program roster.
"This up and coming trio Novak & Haar, bring a passion for music to the table from a variety of genres and can be heard in the music they compose. Although their primary voices are in a jazz setting, one can hear a touch of blues and the air of theater and a sprinkling of classics in the material", said music impresario Paul Collins. "In jazz, it is refreshing to hear variations and other expressions of jazz and also enjoy when artists give a brief explanation of why or how the music was inspired. As music teachers and performers, Novak & Haar do just that by adding more value and meaning to their compositions through their "thoughts about the tracks". If you love guitar and equally enjoy the bass and drums, you will enjoy these tracks." ###
