Second Saturday Live Music with The Hypotheticals!

We are The Hypotheticals for lack of a better name idea. We play swingin'  jazz and contemporary classics. Paul Berger began his career strumming a left-handed tennis racket during the Beatles’ Ed Sullivan appearance. A highly-trained classical/jazz guitarist/viola player, Paul plays with the stellar Century Big Band, along-side many renowned guest musicians. He designs his own line of PT Berger Guitars. Lisa Borg is willing to admit she’s been playing the sax and piano for 43 years. She’s a music ed major, was a band director for 10 years, plays lead alto with the White Bear Big Band, guest-conducted the Minneapolis Pops Orchestra, and sings in a women’s ensemble called Harmonia.  Also, she crushes big time on Paul Desmond’s sax riffs. Carol Caouette is not willing to admit she’s been a musician for 51 years. A trained classical pianist and singer, she played "huge famous star" in her childhood bedroom, then on the cover band circuit for a couple of decades. She played with the White Bear Big Band for a dozen years and can be heard on all of her husband’s PBS documentaries. She is principal musician at White Bear UU Church and is working on a rock-opera project with her daughter, Corinne. Steve Goranson has played bass since junior high, providing roots of chords and mostly steady rhythms for 50 years. He’s a founding member of the seminal Iowa City bar bandThe Fabulous Shucker Brothers and was inducted into the Iowa Rock n’ Roll Music Hall of Fame in 2008
