The Marsh Brothers Jazz Experience is a Cincinnati-based jazz band that originated in 2016. The group features Tyler Marsh on piano and Ethan Marsh on bass and/or guitar, as well as other accomplished musicians from the region. The group opened for the legendary Spyro Gyra at Live at Ludlow Garage in 2017, and in 2018 traveled to cities including Louisville, KY, Evansville, IN, and Nashville, TN (where they played at the infamous Rudy’s Jazz Room) to share their music. Tyler and Ethan play both together and individually with performers throughout the region.
